Baseball in Wartime

Baseball's Greatest Sacrifice


Minor League BaseballMinor League Player Biographies

Having researched wartime baseball for more than a decade, I have accumulated a vast amount of information on many of the men who served with the military and played baseball in some capacity. I have decided that the best way to display this information is in an alphabetic format by player name.

You will find players of all calibres here - major leaguers, minor leaguers, college players, high school players and sandlot ballplayers. But they all have one thing in common - they love baseball and, somehow, found time to play ball while serving with the military.

If you are looking for information on a particular player then let me know and I will gladly see what I have.
