Whetstone of New Orleans, who suffered “a broken spine sustained in sliding to a base”; all other fatalities were the result of foul tips or pitched balls. The list “does not include a major league player or even a minor league athlete of sufficient experience to be widely known.”

1913 – The Giants score six runs against Grover Cleveland Alexander, but the Phillies come back from the 6 – 0 deficit to score eight against Christy Mathewson. With two outs in the top of the 9th, and the Phils leading 8 – 6 over New York, umpire Bill Brennan, acceding to a request by the wily John McGraw, orders Phils captain Mickey Doolan (Phils manager Red Dooin had been ejected during the 6-run 6th) to have spectators removed from the CF bleachers, where they are waving hats, newspapers, and handkerchiefs to distract the batters. When Doolan refuses, Brennan forfeits the game, 9 – 0, to the Giants. Bedlam ensues and later, when the two umpires and Giants players try to board the train at the North Philadelphia Station, they are attacked by fans. The police draw their revolver to control the crowd. The Phils protest the forfeit and National League president Thomas Lynch will reverse the umpire and rule the game an 8 – 6 Phils win. The Giants then appeal. NL directors say both Brennan and Lynch are wrong, and order the game completed from the point at which it was stopped. The game will be finished October 2nd, with the outcome the same.
