What, no neutral-site games in the regular season?

First, the Yankees Played the Indians. Then World War ll Took the Field.

Rather interesting story here, especially for those with an interest in the sort of special exhibition games we don’t seem to have anymore.

During World War II, baseball not only survived, it thrived. Games were turned into dazzling patriotic shows, and an extravaganza like the all-star game featuring the greats of the Yankees, Giants and Dodgers at Polo Grounds on Aug. 26, 1943, raised $800 million in war bonds.

But another war-relief game that summer, which raised far less money, left an enduring mark on baseball.

On July 28, 1943, the main event came after the Cleveland Indians beat the Yankees, 6-2, at Yankee Stadium.
