Ty Cobb is the greatest Tigers player to ever put on a uniform.

They're all rooting for the Giants. In fact, Cobb's family is full of Giants fans. Notabaly, his grandson, Herschel Cobb, lives in the Bay Area and told The Detroit News that the family's rooted for the Giants "for a long time." "Ty Cobb would be very excited about his Tigers playing in the World Series," the 69-year-old grandson said. "But we live in the Bay Area and have been Giants fans for a long time. We're going to be rooting for the home team to prevail."READ MORE AT NBCBayArea.com
