A great story. Withe the end of World War 2, thousands of GIs came back to the U.S. to try and get their lives on track once again. Among them were some of baseball's greatest players. Williams, Dimaggio, Feller, Slaughter. Try to reacclimate themselves into society, they not only had to readjust to a different landscape from before they left, but also trying to win their jobs back in baseball. Imagine today's game where a roster is basically set and a few lesser known players are invited to camp. In 1946, hundreds of ball players were looking for work. Camps may have had 25 lefties alone trying to make a staff. Add to this the dawning of integrated baseball and what people knew and saw before the war would never be the same. But the season was played and it was what the American people needed. The National Pastime in all its glory. Robert Weintraub does a great job bringing to life that magical season in an easy to read and enjoy style. I recommend this book to those who love sports, history, and those who may just want to see what life was like in a different era
