Deaths



Death dates are captured within a few days of publicly being released. Major Leaguers, Minor Leaguers and drafted players should be relatively accurate, however college players, though most college players on the site are still young, are often tougher to come by since these deaths and dates may not be publicly released.

Some older players may be listed with ages of 120+. Obviously, this is just a lack of a reported death date for these players. We apologize if this is misleading.

The Cause of Death is available for some players and displayed only on their profile page. A long-term project that we hope to eventually complete. If you find a particular cause of death to be inaccurate or too personal to include, I can remove it.
