Frank Ringo, the well-known base ball player, died at 9 o’clock Friday morning at his mother’s resident... his second attempt at suicide thus proving successful. Ringo began drinking again a few weeks ago, and he so incapacitated himself for work that he was given his release from the American Base Ball Club of this city [Kansas City]. This worked so on his mind that Thursday he took forty grains of morphine.
