On May 14, 1927 — At the Baker Bowl, with the Phillies leading the Cardinals, 12 – 3, in the 7th inning a section of the right-field stand collapses causing hundreds of fans to fall on the patrons below. The Right Field Pavillion was overcrowded as the fans were trying to escape the rain.

Although there are over 50 injured, the only death, Fred Haas was from an apparent heart attack.
