This week we travel back 80 years to the last pre-war year in American sports, 1941. Most people know about Joe DiMaggio's 56 and Ted Williams' .406. This was also the year of Whirlaway's Triple Crown and a battle of champions between Joe Louis and Billy Conn. Plus the first of many Subway Series between the New York Yankees and the Brooklyn Dodgers!
