Bob Poet

reading Ty Cobb: A Terrible Beauty.
The book mentions the Tigers in Pittsburgh to play an exhibition game against "an 'outlaw' team from Homestead, Pennsylvania." This would have been on or around Sept 24, 1905, near the end of Cobb's rookie season.

Way before Gus Greenlee or Cum Posey were owners (11 and 15 years old, respectively) but I've read the Grays were around back then... wondering if there's any record or account of the game. Who might have been on the Grays that year?
