They have been playing major league baseball for, what, 140 years now and have produced exactly one fatality who was hit in the head by a pitched ball. It happened in 1920. His team went on to win the World Series. Can you name him? Can you name the guy who threw the ball?

Sorry, I've not been following MLB for that long, but frequently hear the commentators remarking about the new bats being more brittle than they used to be. (different wood?)They are now made of maple, I believe.

It is disturbing to see splinters of wood flying across the infield.
