During World War II, the University of North Carolina developed a pre-flight training program that included rigorous athletics. The addition of Major League players such as Ted Williams and Johnny Pesky to the training facility's baseball team resulted in a sort of baseball "super group." Anne R. Keene recounts her father's experience working as a batboy for the players, which culminated in a game held at Yankee Stadium against a team managed by Babe Ruth. Keene's enthusiasm for her subject makes this book a joyous read even for people unfamiliar with baseball.
