Synopsis: More than 5000 major and minor league ballplayers left the baseball diamond to serve in World War II, but President Roosevelt insisted that baseball go on to boost the country's morale. More than 400 replacement players made their major league debuts between 1943 and 1945, among them Sal Maglie, Andy Pafko, Red Schoendienst and Stan Musial.
The true story of wartime baseball rests mostly with the players whose careers were not so well remembered. The author highlights nine - Frank Mancuso, Ford Mullen, Ed Carnett, Lee Pfund, George Hausmann, Cy Buker, Bill Lefebvre, Eddie Basinski, and Nick Strincevich - who share their memories of being called up to play in the majors, and their feelings about providing relief to thousands of Americans during the war years.

About the Author: Craig Allen Cleve is the Mathematics Coordinator at Columbia Explorers Academy in Chicago.

Notes. Selected Bibliography. Index. Back cover is creased. Cover has some other wear and soiling. Craig Allen Cleve is the author of Hardball on the Home Front: Major League Replacement Players of World War II. He is currently working on a history of the West Texas-New Mexico League. He teaches mathematics in the Chicago Public Schools and resides in North Riverside, Illinois. More than 5000 major and minor league baseball players left the baseball diamond to serve in the military during World War II. President Roosevelt insisted that baseball still be played to boost the country's morale. More than 400 replacement players made their major league debuts between 1943 and 1945, among them Sal Maglie, Andy Pafko, Red Schoendienst and Stan Musial.

They share their memories of being called up to play in the majors, and their feelings about providing much needed and much wanted entertainment to thousands of Americans during the war years.
