The Pitch That Killed : The Story of Carl Mays, Ray Chapman, and the Pennant Race of 1920 Paperback / softback

Description

ESPN the Magazine calls The Pitch That Killed "The best baseball book no one has read." This new edition with a foreword by TK introduces to a new generation of readers this classic account of baseball's only death at bat--how the popular Ray Chapman of the Cleveland Indians was struck in the head and killed in August 1920 by a pitch thrown by the New York Yankees' Carl Mays.

Mike Sowell's investigation into the incident and deep probe into the backgrounds of the players involved earned a New York Times Notable Book of the Year commendation.
