By being struck in the head with a baseball while stealing second base, John James was so seriously injured that he died several hours later at the Women's Homeopathic Hospital...His skull was fractured and he died before an operation could be performed.
There seem to be no more Pujols articles after we were deluged by them on a Francoeur-ian rate at the start of the season.
But to note, he has brought his numbers upto his 2011 levels ( both rate and counting stats-wise ). While 2011 was still a drop from his established high levels, thats pretty impressive.
Ofcourse, there is about 2 more months of baseball left..
Mr. Messersmith was born the day Hiroshima was bombed.
Harimoto would survive the release of an atomic bomb over Hiroshima on August 6, 1945, and has been identified as the only survivor of that incident to play professional baseball in Japan. He survived without injuries because the family home was located in the shadow of a mountain and shielded from the blast, but lost a sister who was in the blast zone. Later in life, he would become a member of the Japanese Hibakusha Movement, a project dedicated to outlawing global nuclear weaponry, and gaining compensation for victims of their use.
