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 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
