Travel Days, Shmavel Days

Union Station -  Obsolete during '44 World Series

Argghhh!  No NLCS baseball to watch today!!

Even though St. Louis to San Francisco is a mere two-hour flight these days, it is a "travel day" as per the contract with the Major League Baseball Players Association, and the National League Championship Series is idle.

Imagine, the World Series being played on consecutive days with no rest.  That's the way it was played all the way up through 1956.  Of course, in the 1944 World Series, St. Louis Cardinals vs. Browns, it was not a problem!
