During one point in the 1940 season, Hershberger got to play a few games in a row after Lombardi got banged up. Hershberger blamed himself for a few of the losses during that stretch and sadly committed suicide August 3, 1940.

    The Reds ended up winning the World Series that year and donated a portion of their championship winnings to Hershberger's mother...


    Just to add to it, according to Wikipedia The Cincinnati Reds #5 Jersey is one of 5 Jerseys to have been retired more than once and it was first for Mr. Hershberger in 1940. It was returned to service in 1942 and then we know the rest of the story about the number.

    No worries at all... I just wanted to make sure that Reds Freak's work got read, it got buried pretty quickly. It was an interesting bit of reading.
