Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Paynter, a Cincinnati boy, formerly second baseman with the Shamrocks played center field for the Browns yesterday and did well. He did not get a hit, but caught a hard fly and made two assists. One of his assists, a long throw to third was a beauty. A large delegation of Paynter's friends held down seats in left field and gave him numerous rounds of applause." - Cincinnati Enquirer (Unattributed, 08/13/1894, Box Score)

In The Daily Register (Mobile, Alabama), on August 12, 1896, they reported that George Paynter, the popular second baseman of the Mobile team who was hit in the head by a pitched ball, was now suffering from "brain fever". Six days later they reported he was "suffering from temporary insanity caused by a blood clot on the brain". Then on September 10, 1896, Sporting Life published that Paynter "was taken to the insane asylum at Tuscaloosa.. In a game several weeks ago Paynter, who was batting, was struck in the temple by a swift ball from pitcher (Win) Kellum . From the effects of the blow he has gradually developed insanity."
