"When Baseball Goes To War" On Page 13

When Pearl Harbor was attacked on December 8th, 1941, America became involved in World War II.

Baseball, the national pastime, did it's part to boost morale overseas and on the home front.

Some of the game's biggest stars played exhibition games and met with soldiers near the battlefield. It proved to be a great tool to keep America's mind off the war.

The National World War II Museum in New Orleans tells the story in a fascinating new exhibition titled "When Baseball Went to War." The exhibit features many artifacts from baseball's Hall of Fame and will run through March 30th.
