A former first round draft pick
Killed a man on field
|1981 Topps #632 Alan Bannister|
Holy cow, the things you discover while researching a player! According to Wikipedia:
"In July 1972, as an amateur, Bannister accidentally killed an opposing player during a game. Bannister was a participant in a Baseball Federation tour of Japan, and while attempting to complete a double play during a game against a Japanese team, he made a throw to first base which struck the head of Akira Toumon advancing from first base to second base. Toumon was knocked unconscious, and he later died at the hospital as a result of cerebral contusion."
