Program Description

Event Details

In the summer of 1941, with the world hurtling toward a devastating war, America's attention was riveted on baseball and the accomplishments of two of the game's greatest players. As ominous war clouds gathered over Europe and the Far East, baseball offered an amazing diversion to the drumbeat of bad news.

Joe DiMaggio of the New York Yankees hit in 56 consecutive games that summer and Ted Williams of the Boston Red Sox batted .406, the game's last .400 hitter. No player in the more than 80 years since then has approached either of those brilliant records which seem unbreakable. 

Award-winning sportswriter Hal Bock will revisit those remarkable achievements and the two Hall of Fame stars who kept the attention of their country at a dark time in world history.
