Description

Were the careers of Hank Greenberg and Bill Dickey ended by their service? How would wartime players like Hal Newhouser and Dick Wakefield fare against returning veterans? And would Bob Feller, Stan Musial, Ted Williams, and Joe DiMaggio still perform as they had before they went to war? Those questions would be answered as the season unfolded, a dramatic season that included challenges to baseball’s traditional status from the rival Mexican league, Jackie Robinson’s signing by the Brooklyn Dodgers, and the World Series’ seventh game climax—Enos Slaughter’s legendary dash from first to home.
