Game Two pays tribute to America’s veretans

October 25, 2012

Tonight’s World Series game will honor America’s veterans.

The New York Times ran this piece about Lou Brissie, who managed to have a brief Major League career despite being grievously injured in world war II.

He was the subject of the 2009 biography The Corporal Was a Pitcher: The Courage of Lou Brissie, by former Times‘ writer Ira Berkow.
