Rezension: In 1946, with World War II finally over, major league baseball returned full force. In When the Boys Came Back, Frederick Turner follows the events of the season, beginning with spring training and ending with the World Series match-up that saw the St. Louis Cardinals top the Boston Red Sox in seven games after Enos Slaughter's famed "mad dash" from first to home. The book tells not only of the triumphant return from the armed forces to baseball by great players including Ted Williams and Joe DiMaggio, but also of the less-than-successful attempts to play ball again by former stars like Cecil Travis, who returned from the war with an injury he couldn't overcome.
