This Week In Baseball History

Jan 22, 2020

There are no excuses, only reasons for what Marty Bergen did 120 years ago this week, when a lifetime of paranoia and mental illness culminated in the murder of his family, and the suicide that shocked a the rural community he lived in, and the baseball community at large. Mike and Bill look back on the troubled life of Bergen, and his attempts to get help in an era where none was forthcoming, and marvel at how little we've improved in 12 decades years. Plus, happy birthday to Rusty Greer and Chick Gandil.
