It was the year that Joe DiMaggio set his 56-game hitting streak, that Ted Williams batted .406, that the Dodgers and the Yankees battled each other in a classic World series-and that America went to war.

For all who love baseball, "Baseball in '41" makes it clear why the game is still the purest representation of the American Dream
