Ray Chapman of the Cleveland Indians
Back in 1920 during the game against the Yankees, Mays threw a fastball and hit Ray Chapman straight in his face. Chapman was rushed to a nearby hospital. He suffered from a depressed fracture in this head. The fracture measured 3.5 inches long. Chapman’s skull was severely broken and fragments even went straight, lacerating both sides of the athlete’s brain. Because of the extreme injury, Chapman’s body wasn’t able to fight it out and he died in the morning.
