This day in baseball

Phillies’ starting catcher Walt Lerian died on October 22, 1929 in Baltimore as a result of being crushed against a building the day before by a truck that had jumped a curb.  Lerian had played two seasons for the Philadelphia Phillies from 1928 through 1929.  At the time of his death, at the age of 26, Lerian had been considered a promising talent in the major leagues.
