 Biographical Information
According to the New York Times of March 25, 1921, Larry McLean was shot to death by the bartender of a South Boston saloon, who said he fired in self-defense when McLean started to climb over the bar to attack him.
From September 2-6, 1911, McLean had an amazing streak in which he threw out 14 consecutive baserunners trying to steal; he also picked-off two runners during those games. Those games were part of a longer streak, starting on August 28, during which he threw out 20 of 22 base stealers.
