The Pitch That Killed
Sowell, Mike
"Ivan R. Dee," 2004 (orig. 1989)

The author looks at the tragic beaning (hit by a pitch) of Cleveland’s Ray Chapman in 1920, the only man who was killed on a major league ball field. Sowell captures much more than simply the event, in a style that draws the reader back to the times.
