|Comment||George Thanks for the quick reponse about your Dad. And, yes, when I look at the scorecard of the Rutgers-Lafayette game of 5/17/52 that I mentioned in my original email I see the following Lafayette Coach Charles M. Gelbert. I do believe I remember Coach telling us about his friendship with Charlie Gelbert but only a reminder from you brought it to the surface. Thanks again Ev Hughes RC52|
WW II era major league baseball history - questions about specific WWII era players, stadiums, life in the major leagues, teams, impact of major league baseball upon American society during WWII (FDR's "Green Light" letter to the then Commissioner of Baseball) and the relationship of President Roosevelt with Washington Senators owner Clark Griffith in an effort to keep baseball "alive" during the darkest days of WWII.
Son of a former major league baseball player, George Case Jr. who played in the major leagues from 1937-1947.
I was the former Executive Director of SABR (Society for American Baseball Research)
