Game 8 – Baseball Championship Series – Friday, October 4, 1944

With game 8, the Army All Star versus Navy All Stars moved to the island of Maui at the Kahului Fairgrounds. With the Army getting the first win in the last game of the Series on Oahu, they were hoping to establish a winning streak, however the Navy exacted retribution in the form of an 11-0 shutout pounding of the Army. When the Navy departed for Maui, they did so without three of their pivotal offensive players as Dom DiMaggio and Phil Rizzuto returned to Melbourne, Australia and Pee Wee Reese remained on Oahu.

This single-sheet, four-page program features an illustrated cover, full rosters with the player’s previous club experience with the back cover reserved sponsorship advertisements. The single cardstock page is bi-folded with two monochromatic color selections; black on the interior and red for the front and back cover pages.
