What were the business aspects of professional baseball during World War II? The sport, like many nonessential industries, struggled to find its place in society during a time of war. Archival and primary sources provide insight into the perceptions of the major league owners and an understanding of how most of them were able to keep their businesses profitable while the nation fought a two-front war.
