Pearl Harbor

As we approach the 70th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor we did a little research about Negro League players who served in WWII. In spite of not being permitted to play in MLB, eat in certain restaurants, sit in certain seats, African Americans were required to serve in the US Military if drafted. Many of the stars of the Negro Leagues had to put their baseball careers on hold while they honorably served. 119 Negro Leaguers served during WWII according to https://nlbm.mlblogs.com/negro-leagues-players-played-major-role-in-world-war-ii-4bc5cb125b7f
