Did you know that Anniston, AL once had its own minor league baseball team? Between 1904 and 1950, Anniston’s baseball team was called the Nobles, the Models, the Moulders, and finally the Rams. The famous Ty Cobb played one season in Anniston in 1904. The team took three years off during World War II, but returned in 1946 for play. Unfortunately, in 1950, the team played its last season, losing 73 games and winning 21. Attendance was low, and the people of Anniston were unable to financially support the struggling team.
