Coleman, 73, from Half Moon Bay, CA thrilled Tiger fans in Lakeland, Florida, winter home of the Detroit Tigers. He also performed at the Ty Cobb Museum in Royston, Georgia and the President Gerald R. Ford Museum in Grand Rapids, Michigan in a show sponsored by the Hall of Fame, Cooperstown, New York.
In addition, Coleman has made over 200 appearances throughout the San Francisco Bay area.
The show is multi media: video, photographs and music.
Cobb was the first great American sports hero. He was the first player elected to The Hall of Fame, first millionaire ballplayer and the first player to make a Hollywood movie. He knew every president from William H. Taft to Richard M. Nixon.
His lifetime batting average of 367 is the best in the Major Leagues.
Coleman brought Cobb to life, he knocked my socks off Ron Myers, Complex
Director at Tigertown in Lakeland, Fl. said.
Glad to hear your show is a success. David Dombrowski, G.M. Detroit Tigers.
The show is entertaining, humorous, historical and informative.

Playing days with the Tigers. He weaves anecdotes about many players he knew:
Babe Ruth, Ted Williams, Joe DiMaggio, Willie Mays and more.
