Major League Baseball Players Who Died in Michigan

Hall of Fame Manager Casey Stengel once quipped, "Most people my age are dead - you could look it up."

Major League Baseball Players Who Died in Michigan



If you have ever wondered what month most ballplayers passed away in, or if you enjoy reading baseball obituaries, then Baseball Almanac suggests you visit our Baseball Player Obituaries & Death by Month Chart .

Baseball Almanac is aware that researching baseball players by their place of death is common data found easily on the Internet today. We, as you are well aware, enjoy taking that extra step here and have taken that common data and added this amazing chart which will enable you to see a historical breakdown of players from any given year in history by their place of death:

Did you know that Frank Ringo was the first Major League baseball player to committ suicide? On April 12, 1889, he ingested a lethal dose of morphine, died of the drug overdose, and became the first baseball suicide in history.
