Pittsburgh Press, July 9, 1914:
Waddell passed away in April 1914, just three months before his batterymate. Seems odd that a pitcher and catcher who worked together so frequently would die young so close to each other.
Schrecongost (there are a number of spellings that get used, but this is what BB-Ref uses) was a pretty good player. Played 11 years in the majors, career .271 hitter, top ten in the league in dWAR three times. Got some mild HOF support for a few years, but was never a legitimate candidate.
