Pittsburgh Press, September 2, 1914:
Hauser’s story is heartbreaking.
His father died in 1904, when Arnold was a teenager. In 1912, his mother committed suicide, and in 1913 Hauser’s infant daughter died. The deaths in his family, in addition to a severe knee injury, sent him over the edge. According to his SABR bio, Hauser arrived at Spring Training 1914 having lost 25 pounds, obviously severely depressed, and suffering from delusions. He was committed to a sanitarium and was diagnosed as “a victim of melancholia with a religious trend”.
Hauser had a cup of coffee with the 1915 Chicago Whales, but didn’t play particularly well and was out of baseball at the end of the year.
