Blow Out the Candles August 12

One of the top pitchers of all-time Christy Mathewson was born in Factoryville, Pennsylvania on this date in 1880.

Two of the "First Five", Cobb and Mathewson
Christy's experiences in WWI led to his untimely death at age 45.

Hall of Fame White Sox catcher Ray Schalk Harvel, Illinois on this date in 1892.

For much more on Ray Schalk check out this blog by Brian Cooper who literally wrote the book on Schalk.

Physicist Erwin Schrodinger was born in Vienna, Austria on this date in 1887.

One of the founders of quantum mechanics, Schrodinger is most well known for his thought experiment known as Schrodinger's Cat.
