This day in baseball

On February 17, 1943, Joe DiMaggio enlisted in the United States Army Air Forces without notifying the Yankees.  Reportedly, DiMaggio requested that he receive no special treatment.  In spite of this, he spent most of his time in the Army playing baseball, as did many other big league stars.
