The 1920 baseball season was one of triumph and tragedy for the Cleveland Indians. The franchise, led by Hall of Fame inductee Tris Speaker, battled both the Yankees and the White Sox down the stretch, and beat Brooklyn in the World Series to win its first championship. Sadly, the season was also haunted by the death of Ray Chapman, one of the team’s and baseball’s most beloved players, who was killed by a pitch by Yankees’ pitcher Carl Mays.
Join Cleveland baseball historians Bryan Fritz ’75 and Ken Krsolovic, authors of “League Park: Historic Home of Cleveland Baseball, 1891-1946”, as we explore one of the most memorable seasons in baseball history.
