    I sure will. We've got tickets for the Cardinals, Astros, Cubs and Nationals series throughout the rest of the summer.

    OK Sports Fans: Who was the only player in Major League Baseball to die during a game? For full marks give his name, the team he played for and the events leading to his death.



    NO PEEKING on the web either!

    Does CHOKING count? Trevor Hoffman gave away the National League's lead at the last moment. The National League losing streak continues at over 10 years now. Usually, I could care less but the American League now has home field advantage in the World Series!

    HAHAHAHHAAAAA. But no... you're answer is in fact.... Not correct. Sorry Tom.

    Y'all might have to dig a little deeply into your baseball history to work this one out.....

    Didn't J.R. Richards from the Astros die of an MI during a game? I have no clue the year, but I would guess late '80's to early '90's.

    Nah. I'm wrong. He had a CVA after a shoulder injury.

    Well since no one seems to know the answer, here it is....

    THERE IS DYING IN BASEBALL

    www.safetyxchange.com

    Ray Chapman: The only player ever killed in a Major League Baseball game

    The Tragic Death of Ray Chapman, By Glenn Demby

    The All-Star break is a perfect time to reflect on one of the darkest moments in the history of Major League Baseball. It happened on August 16, 1920. The Cleveland Indians had travelled to the Polo Grounds in New York to take on an upstart team called the Yankees.

    On the mound for the Yankees that day was Carl Mays, a right-handed submariner with a nasty reputation (Note: For you non-baseball fans, a submariner is a pitcher who hurls side armed, their knuckles almost scraping the ground, as opposed to over the shoulder). Mays considered home plate his personal territory and wasn't afraid to pitch high and tight to batters who "crowded the plate."

    The Cleveland shortstop, 29-year-old Ray Chapman, was one of those who liked to crowd the plate. He came to bat leading off the fifth inning with Cleveland ahead 3-0. Mays's first pitch sailed inside and struck Chapman on the temple, fracturing his skull. The "crack" sounded so much like a batted ball that Yankee third baseman Aaron Ward actually charged the ricochet thinking that Chapman had hit it. But Chapman was down and unconscious. Blood poured from his ears, nose and mouth.

    Chapman was removed from the field by stretcher and rushed to the hospital for emergency surgery. But it was to no avail. Chapman was pronounced dead at 4:30 A.M.

    The incident shocked and horrified not just baseball but the entire country. Mays appeared before the district attorney's homicide bureau but was later cleared of all wrongdoing. Although Mays was vilified in the press, the incident didn't affect his pitching. He'd go on to win 26 games for the Yankees that year and was later elected to the Hall of Fame.

    Baseball's response to the tragedy was to ban the use of dirtied and weathered balls from play. Mandatory use of the batting helmet remained more than four decades away. There have been at least half a dozen notorious "bean ball" injuries since the death of Ray Chapman. However, Chapman remains the only person ever killed in a Major League Baseball game.

    If the Mets keep up their crappy play, they won't even get to that point. I hope that they are getting all of their losses out of the way for the big games
