In 1945 the New York Yankees honored our armed forces by having an active serviceman raise the American Flag before each game. This game-used baseball was from a game between the Yankees and Washington in which an active serviceman serving in the U.S. Navy raised the flag. He was seated behind the dugout and at the conclusion of the game, he was given a game-used ball by the team. "Yankee Stadium 1945" and "NY vs WASH" is printed in red ballpoint ink traced over faded black ink. on side panels. Ball comes with an LOA from the serviceman who we met in person (great gentleman).
