The Kid Comes Back

by John R. Tunis

Roy Tucker left the Dodgers to become a war hero—and now he’s fighting to get back onto the baseball diamond Roy Tucker was one of the best prospects the Dodgers had—first as a pitcher, then as an outfielder when he injured the elbow of his throwing arm.

Then he went off to serve in World War II, where a plane crash over France left him with pain in his hips and back. The war is nearly over, and players are starting to return from the front to play ball again.

If the Dodgers aim to have any chance at the pennant, the kid from Tomkinsville will have to fight his way back into the game once more.
