Ray Chapman Photo by George Burke

Ray Chapman Photo by George Burke

*Erratum* Photo was done by "George" Burke not "Jack" Burke
8x10" black & white photo of Ray Chapman (1891-1920). Chapman is the only modern major leaguer to have died as a direct result of being hit by a pitch. Crowding the plate, he was knocked out by a high inside fastball to the temple from the hand of Carl Mays. Chapman, who was destined for a Hall of Fame career, was replaced by rookie, Joe Sewell, who did go on to have a Hall of Fame career. Many believe that Carl Mays put a black mark on the national pastime, not only because of this terrible fatality in baseball, but because it is believed that he threw the World Series against the Giants in 1921.
