tragic death of the Tulsa Drillers 1st base coach (Mike Coolbaugh who
was struck by a foul ball Sunday
July 22, 2007) reminded me of these two past local deaths.

My grandfather C.H. Wright was playing in the 1910 game here with his
Dad (W.L. Wright) writing the story including the "bonehead"
mistakes by the left fielder (C.H.). The 1933 story would have been written
by C.H. Wright. I assume both of these deaths pre-dated the hard batting
helmets now required.
