This might not interest others as much as me, since it took place in my hometown, but it's a great piece of baseball history that's probably unknown to most people. Players such as Phil Rizzuto, Dom DiMaggio, Hugh Casey, and Pee Wee Reese participated. Excellent series of articles by the Virginian-Pilot.
