1949: On The Threshold

by Steve Ehresman

The 1949 baseball season set the template for what many consider the Golden Age of America’s Pastime, the 1950s. Erstwhile baseball clown Casey Stengel arrived in New York and created a dynasty. The St. Louis Cardinals, America’s Team during the turbulent 1940s, gave way to a new generation of stars in Brooklyn.

While Ted Williams and Jackie Robinson captured the MVP Award in their respective leagues, America thrilled to the best pennant races of the post- World War II Era. Joe DiMaggio’s oft-injured Yankees withstood a strong surge from Ted William’s Red Sox to capture the American League pennant, and Jackie Robinson’s youthful Dodgers battled Stan Musial’s Cardinals all summer to secure the flag in the National League.

As the decade of the 1940s came to an end, America’s sporting public paid homage to its veteran stars while getting to know its new heroes, exciting youngsters such as Richie Ashburn, Yogi Berra, Del Ennis, Nellie Fox, Gil Hodges, Ted Kluszewski, Don Newcombe, Billy Pierce, and Duke Snider to name but a few.
