In the aftermath of the global conflict 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?

Those questions would be answered as the season unfolded, a dramatic season that included challenges to baseball’s traditional status from the rival Mexican league; Jackie Robinson’s signing by the Brooklyn Dodgers; a pennant race in the National League that ended in the first tie in history; and a World Series culminated in the seventh game by Enos Slaughter’s legendary dash from first to home.
