Baseball's Greatest Sacrifice is brought to you by Gary Bedingfield, creator and editor of BaseballinWartime.com, the Internet's biggest resource for anything related to baseball and the military.
Over the past 10 years I have been gathering information on baseball players who lost their lives in WWII. It has amazed me that the stories of these men - who made the ultimate sacrifice - have been lost for more than 60 years. At long last you can learn the fascinating and heart-rending stories of these brave young men who played baseball at all levels - professional, semi-professional, college, amateur and high school.
Many baseball legends live on in baseball themed online casino games.
