This Week In Baseball History

May 23, 2018

By any objective measure, Mickey Cochrane is one of the greatest players in the history of baseball, despite his career ending prematurely 81 years ago this week, when his skull was fractured by an errant Bump Hadley fastball. Mike and Bill look at Cochrane's life and career, and the tragic incident that cut short both his playing and managerial career, and threatened his life. Also, happy birthday to Augie Galan and Kent Hrbek!
