Game Two pays tribute to America’s veretans

October 25, 2012 · 0 comments

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.
