Spring training is the start of a glorious time of year. We normally associate it with Arizona and Florida. Not so during World War II.

On March 18, 1943, due to wartime travel restrictions, spring training camps begin opening in northern locations.

Some of the locales include Bear Mountain, NY (Dodgers), French Lick Springs, IN (Cubs and White Sox), Asbury Park, NJ (Yankees), Medford, MA (Red Sox), and Wallingford, CT (Braves).
