   The Museum centered the program around Ransom Jackson, who was the last player to hit a homerun in Brooklyn with the Dodgers before they moved to Los Angeles and recent author of the book, "Accidental Big Leaguer," published by Rowman & Littlefield of Lanham, MD.

      Also featured in the program was winner of Game 6 of the 2011 World Series with the St Louis Cardinals and Madison County, Georgia resident, Jake Westbrook.

   In addition to Westbrook, UGA Alumini Association executive and longtime UGA legend, Loran Smith was part of the presentation. And finally University of Georgia Baseball Coach Scott Stricklin was also a big part of the panel discussion as Smith served as discussion moderator.

1999​

       In 1999, Michael Mandt, producer for Major League Baseball Productions, set up an interview with National Chairman and Ty Cobb Historian, Wesley Fricks, one evening at Turner Field for the production of MLB's All-Century Team documentary.

       Before the taping, Mr. Fricks involved former Ty Cobb Batboy, Jimmy F. Lanier, who lived in the Cobb neighborhood in Augusta, Georgia.

       This was significant as it was the initial major production that we participated in on a National level and it proved to be a positive production for Ty Cobb.
