Stanley Joseph McCabe (better known as Stan McCabe) was born on July 16, 1910 in the city of Grenfell in the Australian state of New South Wales. He scored an unbeaten 187 out of Australia's total of 278 in the first of five Tests against England at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG), Sydney, New South Wales, Australia in the 1932-33 Ashes series. It was a brave innings. McCabe, a right-handed batsman and a right-arm medium-pace bowler, made 385 runs at an average of almost 43 in the five matches of the series, better known as the Bodyline series. He died after falling from a cliff at his home in Beauty Point, Mosman, Sydney at the age of 58 years and forty days on August 25, 1968.
