Encyclopedia > Chick Stahl

Charles Sylvester "Chick" Stahl (January 10, 1873 - March 28, 1907) was an American outfielder in Major League Baseball who was among the most feared and consistent hitters in his time. In his rookie 1897 season with the Boston Beaneaters, he batted .354, and over his first six season, he averaged over .300. In 1899, he had six hits in a game, and in the 1903 World Series, he hit three triples. In 1906, he was named manager of the Boston Red Sox after his friend Jimmy Collins decided to focus on his playing. But the stress of managing took its toll on him, and in West Baden, Indiana, he committed suicide by drinking four ounces of carbolic acid. His suicide note read "Boys, I just couldn't help it. You drove me to it." Cy Young reluctantly took over as manager to start the 1907 season, but he was replaced six games into the season. Stahl's widow mysteriously died one year later.
