The Deadball Era: : where every player is safe at home. Dedicated to deceased ballplayers, this site has grave photos, burial sites, obituaries and more. Check out the very cool audio vault. Listen to Babe and Lou do comedy (5 min. MP3). ["Babe, all you have to do is diet another 15 years and you'll almost look human".] Peruse the baseball cards and photos of the dead. Enjoy the grim story of the '27 Yankees (warning: embedded sound). They also have photos of dead stadiums.

Awesome link jeff. With an entire section devoted to Thurman Munson. I changed my jersey number to Thurman's for the upcoming season. I'm going to dive in to these links and not come out until the M's are above .500.

I came across this site a while back when I was obsessing about old torn-down stadiums. Thanks for reminding me of a great site!
