    Played & Died During The Same Calendar Year

    Today I was asked on Baseball Almanac, "Why did the 1932 Pittsburg Pirates where a black armband?" I advised I had no idea and sent them here to ask a Pirates expert. But I did check to see if anybody from the Pirates had passed away in 1932 who had also played in 1932. Nothing matched, but I was still curious about similar situations.

    The list below includes each player who passed away in the same exact season they were playing in or had played in. This DOES NOT include players who died after the following year (finished season in October, but passing away in January / February / March), just those who passed away during the same calendar year.
