About this title:

Synopsis: In the aftermath of World War II, few events in the United States were as eagerly awaited as baseball's spring training. But the national pastime was as unsettled as the rest of the country. Had some of the stars seen their careers ended by their service? How would wartime players fare against returning veterans? These questions would be answered as the dramatic season unfolded--a season that included Jackie Robinson's signing by the Brooklyn Dodgers, a pennant race in the National League that ended in history's first tie, challenges from a rival Mexican league, and a World Series culminated in the seventh game by Enos Slaughter's legendary dash from first to home. Drawing on new interviews with many of the players who wrote the season's history, Frederick Turner brings this historic chapter in American culture to life.

Review: In 1946, with World War II finally over, major league baseball returned full force. In When the Boys Came Back, Frederick Turner follows the events of the season, beginning with spring training and ending with the World Series match-up that saw the St. Louis Cardinals top the Boston Red Sox in seven games after Enos Slaughter's famed "mad dash" from first to home. The book tells not only of the triumphant return from the armed forces to baseball by great players including Ted Williams and Joe DiMaggio, but also of the less-than-successful attempts to play ball again by former stars like Cecil Travis, who returned from the war with an injury he couldn't overcome.
