1943 postscript: The Spoils of War

by Paul Tenpenny

Bill Veeck's hard work rebuilding the Milwaukee Brewers in 1941 and 1942 paid off with the Brews taking the 1943 American Association Crown with a 90-61 record under the skillful management of Charlie Grimm.

This is a rare view of Grimm's championship ring from that season.
