Here’s a quick, pre-spring training, WWII video highlighting famous MLB players who gave up years of their baseball career in order to serve their beloved country in a time of war!

Let’s remember them by adding any war stories of them that you have either heard of or know from first hand experience, in the comments below or a 30 second Blurt (see the button near the submit comment button).

    Fantastic video.

    You’ll find lots of information on baseball players who served with the military during WWII at the baseballinwartime.com website. I recommend you take a moment to read the biographies of over 130 minor league players (and two major leaguers) who lost their lives while in the armed forces. You’ll find these biographies here http://www.baseballinwartime.com/in_memoriam/in_memoriam.htm
