Spring Snow?

March 18, 1943 – The Brooklyn Dodgers begin training camp in Bear Mountain, NY. The athletic facilities at West Point are utilized because of travel restrictions during World War II. Some of the most famous spring training photos in Dodger history include players throwing snowballs or skiing in their Dodger uniform. Other 1943 “spring cities” include training camps in French Lick Springs, IN (Cubs and White Sox); Asbury Park, NJ (Yankees); Medford, MA (Red Sox) and Wallingford, CT (Boston Braves).
