Listing of baseball deaths for the 1872 calendar year. Note that our tracking for deaths is not 100% complete and it is based on available public information as many former non-MLB player deaths may not be captured. The Cause of Death is not always available for a particular player.
The TBC Data Store allows you to purchase the data you see on the site. The store has standard pre-determined data products as well as the ability to work with us to produce custom data extracts based on your requirements.
