MacArthur and Baseball

Thursday, August 18, 2022

In his autobiography, General MacArthur summed up the WWII island hopping strategy with a quote from baseball legend Willie Keeler: “hit ‘em where they ain’t.” It wasn’t just a convenient, pithy quote. Football may have been MacArthur’s favorite sport, but baseball was a close runner-up. From playing in the first Army/Navy baseball game as a young cadet to holding special American and National League passes in the 1950s that allowed him a fantastic seat at any MLB game, baseball was a consistent part of his life. Join Jim Zobel and Amanda Williams of the MacArthur Memorial on August 18 at 12:00PM EST for a virtual discussion of MacArthur and baseball. How do you join? The easiest way is to follow the General Douglas MacArthur Memorial on Facebook. When we go live from our page, you should receive a notification that we are "live."
