Baseball Book Club: From the Dugouts to the Trenches Baseball During the Great War

April 6, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

The United States entered World War One 102 years ago today.

Baseball, like the rest of the country, changed dramatically when the United States entered World War I, and Jim Leeke brings these changes to life in From the Dugouts to the Trenches. He deftly describes how the war obliterated big league clubs and largely dismantled the Minor Leagues, as many prominent players joined the military and went overseas. By the war’s end more than 1,250 ballplayers, team owners, and sportswriters would serve, demonstrating that while the war was “over there,” it had a considerable impact on the national pastime.
