70 Years Ago -- Three Way Baseball Game

Al has noted a couple of anniversaries this week. One of them happier than the other -- The Sandberg Game, which I am old enough to remember watching.

As many of you know, June 6 was the 70th Anniversary of D-Day. I'm a somewhat wanna-be amateur history buff, which basically means that I find it interesting but am in no means any kind of expert. Earlier this month, the History Channel went back to its roots and showed stuff about actual history, and I recorded several shows on my DVR. Last week, I caught a bit of baseball history that I don't ever remember hearing about. It's not Cubs related, but I think that it's worthy of a mention here.

On June 26, 1944, the Brooklyn Dodgers defeated the New York Yankees and the New York Giants in the same game. The event was staged to raise money for WWII war bonds.

I apologize if this has already been covered in BCB history, but at any rate, I think it's worth revisiting.
