    Death by Fastball

    Hit By Pitch: Ray Chapman, Carl Mays and the Fatal Fastball (McFarland) by Molly Lawless is a graphic non-fiction book about the only known on-field death during a baseball game. In 1920, Ray Chapman died from landing a fastball from pitcher Carl Mays on his head, and Malcolm MacLean enjoyed reading about this all but forgotten piece of sport history in this format.
