It was the first time his teammates who also hated him rallyied behind him and refuse to play until COBB was reinstated. The owner pleaded with the president of the American League that he needed his team back. COBB was reinstated and the owner got his team back. TY COBB went through some terrible hazing by his teamates nailing his spikes to the ground breaking his baseball bats nailing his hotel door shut.
