Carl Mays


John J. McGraw says: “Over in the American League this willingness of the umpires to throw out a ball started with the sad accident in which Ray Chapman was killed by a ball pitched by Carl Mays. I am told that someone had objected to 210 My Thirty Years in Baseball the ball that day, but that the umpire did not see fit to throw it out. Instead of going as intended, the ball “sailed” and Chapman was hit. Since then the umpires take no chances. In a way one cannot blame them.”
