Baseball, in all its rich and glorious past, never had a year of greater significance. Baseball’s centennial year—1939—was the game’s tipping point when certain seemingly unrelated events were the catalyst to change on multiple fronts and transformed the game. 1939 tells the story of five baseball giants, true American heroes: Gehrig, DiMaggio, Williams, Feller and Paige.
