Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Thomas Andrew Rogers (February 12, 1892 - March 7, 1936) was a Major League Baseball pitcher from 1917 to 1921 for the St. Louis Browns, Philadelphia Athletics, and New York Yankees. Nicknamed "Shotgun," Rogers was involved in an incident in 1916 in which he accidentally killed an opposing batter. While playing for the Minor League Nashville Vols, Rogers hit Johnny Dodge, a longtime friend who was playing for the Mobile Sea Gulls, with a pitch, killing him. Rogers later suffered emotional problems as a result of the incident and died prematurely at age 44.show more
