Toledo News-Bee, July 27, 1916:
There’s an accompanying photo with this article, with a caption that reads in part, “Below, Carl Mays, of world’s champion Red Sox, center of latest campaign on deadly pitch.”
Four years and three weeks later, Mays would again be the center of unwanted attention over a beanball.

Pittsburgh Press, June 20, 1916:
Aw, man, that sucks.
I wasn’t familiar with the John Dodge incident; as far as I knew, Ray Chapman was the only player to both play in the major leagues and die as a result of getting hit by a pitched ball.
Rogers’ BB-Ref Bullpen page cites a source that says Dodge had a habit of running at curveballs to hit them before they curved. Unfortunately, he ran at a high fastball and it hit him in the face.
As for Rogers, he went on to throw a perfect game three weeks later, then spent four so-so years in the majors.

Just look how longer suspensions have completely deterred PED use.
Pittsburgh Press, June 8, 1916:
Such a rule probably would not have prevented the Mays-Chapman incident four years later - most contemporary sources say it was purely accidental - but it certainly wouldn’t have been a bad idea.

I am all for this being a full unwritten rule. Especially for accidentally hitting someone in the head, but even for intentional plunks to the meaty parts. If you hit someone, get them a little something to let them know you realize that getting hit sucks.
