MLB Power Rankings: 20 Hall of Famers Who Served  the USA During Wartime

MLB has had an abundance of men who left the game to go serve our great country. It was actually quite common back during the days of World War I and II.

By my count, there are 51 members of the baseball Hall of Fame who served in the military during wartime.  

In honor of Memorial Day, let's take a look at some of the brave men who left the game they loved to go help protect the freedoms we enjoy today—and every day.

Most importantly, let's thank all of the brave men and women who have paid the ultimate sacrifice and all of our service members who have served and/or still do serve today.

Here are 20 MLB Hall of Famers—in alphabetical order—who served our country during wartime.

 

Dedicated to:
