Back in 1920, the Cleveland Indians won their first World Series title. While there was a lot to cheer about, the celebration was also tempered with sorrow.

Earlier that season, on this date of August 16, their shortstop, Ray Chapman, was hit in the head by a pitch. He died 12 hours later.

FOX 8 photojournalist Ali Ghanbari takes you to Cleveland’s League Park to see how they’re remembering Ray.
