1943 NTS Norfolk Baseball Team

Phil Rizzuto

The Norfolk Ledger-Star sent a photojournalist to Naval Training Station Norfolk in 1943 to photograph the members of the "NTS Nine," the station's baseball team. The NTS Nine was loaded with some of baseball's most well known starts and a few future Hall of Famers. The Norfolk Public Libary's Sargeant Memorial Room was gracious enough to share these photos with us. We include three photos from the collection.
