Hey nice Aegis i never knew that,who was the player that got killed by the pitch?


ok i found it. here's the copy and pasted version of the article.

"Ray Chapman was killed near the end of the season by a fastball that struck him in the head (he wasn't wearing a helmet, of course). He is the only player to have been killed during a major league game, though others have died in the minors. It was a very controversial situation, which I guess shouldn't be surprising. The pitcher, Carl Mays, was accused of throwing at Chapman's head; maybe he was, but this wouldn't make him any different from most of the other pitchers in the league.
Chapman was checked by a doctor on the field; he got up and walked away, then collapsed again and died of internal bleeding. The doctor took a lot of criticism; I don't know, what would you do if a guy got hit on the head, then wanted to walk away? How did they treat internal head injuries in 1920, anyway?
Observers felt that Chapman never saw the pitch coming; the ball by that time, after having been in the muck and spit upon and slobbered on and scuffed up and more, had turned a shade of brown. In the aftermath of Chapman's death, the practice of replacing every scuffed ball with a fresh one was introduced. This change helped make it even easier for sluggers like Ruth to hit mammoth home runs."

here's the link to where i found it.

fenway is correct, wrigley is the correct park but it was on 4/23/1914

Charlie Weeghman built Weeghman Park for "his" Chicago Federals of the brand new Federal League. The Federal League went out of business after only two years, so Weeghman, William Wrigley, Jr., and nine others purchased the National League Chicago Cubs. The Cubs were then moved from West Side Grounds to Weeghman Park. Wrigley bought out the shares of the other original members and changed the name to Cubs Park in time for the 1920 Opening Day. In 1926, it was renamed to Wrigley Field in his honor.

So technically the Cubs first game was in 1916, but the stadium actually opened in 1914.

As near as i can tell it's Mark McGwire, he led the AL in 1996 with Oakland, and led the NL in 1998, and 1999 with St. Louis.

i missed that one. as soon as i saw McGwire i quit looking any farther. it's getting tough to find new trivia questions i think we covered all the easily researched ones. but now i'm on a quest to find more stumpers. so time to hit the stacks.

Yeah i agree,i found a few hard ones but you did real good in getting most of them.

I think the harder the better,ProudA must have missed this thread he is usually pretty good on the trivia..

I got another one maybe not real hard but a little bit of research needed..

1....Rank each player according to their highest number of home runs in a season.

So put the year,amount of homeruns..starting with the player with the most homers in a season.

Hank Aaron
Willie Mays
Jimmie Foxx
Roger Maris

1. Who hit the Major Leagues first pinch hit grandslam? When? Who did he play for?

2. In what year was the first World Series game between the AL and the NL played? Which teams were in that World Series?

i've got 1903 the Pirates vs. the Pilgrims, but it's not uncommon for teams from back then to have multiple names depending on where you look up the info. good job. now that was the easy one.

oh yeah and some more little FYI on this game the 1903 WS was an 8 game series.
