Some called Cleveland-born Ed Delahanty baseball's 19th century Babe Ruth. The MLB Hall of Famer is the only slugger to have topped the batting field in both leagues, was the highest-paid player of his day, and remains No. 5 on the list of all-time highest batting averages. But he's even more famous for the way he died. When his body was found beneath Niagara Falls, it started a century-long debate as to whether his fall from a bridge over the river was suicide, or a tragic accident. www.ohiomysteries.com feedback@ohiomysteries.com www.patreon.com/ohiomysteries www.twitter.com/mysteriesohio www.facebook.com/ohiomysteries Music: Two Years, by Rachel Maxann.
