This is just crazy. Has anybody ever heard of old time ball players doing this kind of stuff?

In 1900 Marty Bergen hacked up his family and then killed himself. And Willard Hershberger, who appears in the 1940 Play Ball set, killed himself in a hotel room. I'm sure there are others.

they were much more creative back then...battery acid, morphine, opium, illuminating gas, choloric acid...etc.

as far as "oldtime" ballplayers pulling stunts like TO...just read up on Rube Waddell, Germany Schafer, and even our beloved G.H. Ruth...just to name a few.

Looks like an interesting "Type card" collection possibility.

Still, of all the crazies, ol' Terrible Terry Larkin is the king ....

Turner,

From the stories that I've read, that was a lot more troubled ball players in the "old times." Many had to pick up a second job after "work" at the local bar.

Unfriggingbelievable that someone would kill themselves by slashing their throat with a razor blade (several died that way). Of course consuming battery acid wouldn't be my preference either.
Did every major league player named McGann commit suicide?????
