Batting helmets did not become a common apearence until the 1950's but an inccident happened some 30 years earlier to make club owners consider requiring there use. What happened in 1920 to make club owners consider the use of this new body "armor" at the time and who did it involve?

Well, you would have to think that Ray Chapman getting killed by a Carl Mays pitch in 1920 would have got their attention.
