Welcome to Comfortably Zoned Week 2 Show 3

Your Host: Ralph Tyko

War Time Baseball in The Zone. “I honestly feel that it would be best for the country to keep baseball going.”-President Franklin D. Roosevelt in his Green Light Letter

The president’s Green Light Letter was front page news all over the country, with headlines reading “Stay in There and Pitch: FDR” and “President Says U.S. Needs Its Baseball.” Fans, players, and owners applauded the president and breathed a collective sigh of relief. Clark Griffith, president of the Washington Senators, said,

Baseball feels highly honored that Mr. Roosevelt has chosen to regard our game as such a vital asset to popular morale.”

And Larry MacPhail of the Brooklyn Dodgers told the Chicago Sun-Times,

President Roosevelt’s letter has clarified the entire baseball picture. The needs of the government are paramount, but I believe baseball can contribute a lot in these times.”

Clark Griffith, president of the Washington Senators Historians from the Comfortably Zoned Network, David Hubler, George Case lll, and Ron Rabinonovitz take us back to the times when Baseball was the true National Pastime.

In the first segment, George talks to author David Hubler, about his book,

“The Nats and The Grays: How Baseball in the Nation’s Capital Survived WWll and Changed Baseball Forever”

In the second segment, Ron discusses the life and times of George, and his father, the late George Case Jr.

The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
