Uniform & Team History
In honor of the late Ray Chapman, who was one of the best defensive shortstops of his era. On August 16, 1920, he was hit by a pitch thrown by Carl Mays of the Yankees and died the next day, making him the only player in big-league history to die as a result of a game injury.
