The New York Yankees train at Atlantic City New Jersey for the 1944 baseball season, during World War 2. Yankees players, wearing long sleeves, jog around the infield. Manager Joe McCarthy addresses the club. Players warm up with throwing and batting drills. Outfielder Ed Levy (#9) swings in batting cage. Second baseman Stuffy Sternweiss (#2) takes a swing. Manager McCarthy clowns around with movie camera. Action shifts to New York Giants spring training camp in Lakewood, New Jersey. Catcher Gus Mancuso takes part in camera tricks. Manager and Hall of Fame slugger Mel Ott looks over his squad. Shortshop Billy Jurges hits a ground ball. (Note: Spring training for all Major League Baseball clubs was in the north that year because of travel restrictions during World War II.)
