Awesome article, puts things into perspective when you think of pro sports today. My grandfather was in the Red Sox farm system at that time and he had to put baseball on hold when the war started, he was in the Navy on an LST in the Pacific.

True Don. Shows how the whole nation suffered, but put life on hold for the good of all men despite their selfish desires. It's sacrifice like that which made life as we know it today. Thank your grandfather for his service--god willing that's still an option.
