True Baseball Heroes
Joe Guzzardi of the Lodi News-Sentinel has written a good article recalling heroes who gave up baseball to serve their country. There are many interesting World War II facts in his story, from Cecil Travis possibly missing out on the Hall of Fame due to getting frostbitten feet during the Battle of the Bulge, to the manufacturer of Louisville Slugger bats converting its production lines to make M1 carbine rifle stocks. If you get a chance, you can check out his article here.
