TY COBB MUSEUM Royston, Georgia


Advisory Board

       The Ty Cobb Museum Advisory Board has evolved over the last twenty years now becoming a significant tool and resource for the guidance of future develoopment and program strenghtening  to make it the best museum in the country.

       The Ty Cobb Museum established this committee in March of 1998. It was first called the Ty Cobb Museum Planning & Development Committee. After the Museum opened on July 17, 1998, it was renamed the Ty Cobb Museum Advisory Committee.  

       Then after a short recess, it was renamed the Ty Cobb Museum Advisory Board in 2014.

       The Ty Cobb Museum Advisory Board kicked off the new year with a new direction for the 20th Anniversary Celebration and set the date for July 26-28, 2018.

        The goal is to get as many MLB players and former players present as possible to help make this event a very memorable occasion and to give 200 youngsters of our community a chance at Major League instruction. 
       The Advisory Board held its first meeting on Saturday January 13, 2018. The Advisory Board was hand selected to carry the Ty Cobb Museum through the 20th Anniversary Celebration in July 2018.
