The TBC Data Store allows you to purchase some standard datasets available on the site or even request a custom extract of your own design!
Deaths are updated every few days. Death cause is lightly researched. In many cases, the cause is never made public and so it is assumed it was meant to be private and so further no research occurs.

Use the Deaths Research Application to search the history of baseball deaths.
