  • It was the middle of World War II and Second Lt. Jack Watson was piloting one of four B-17 Flying Fortresses flying over New York. They were passing on their way to Maine for one last layover before heading to England.According to the 303rd Bomb Group, they were flying over Yankee Stadium when they realized Game 1 of the 1943 World Series was being played. Watson and his sole B-17 decided to return for an encore. He flew so low that the bomber cleared the flag poles on top of the upper deck of Yankee Stadium by less than 25 feet. New York Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia was in attendance and furious.  Eventually all of the crew were reprimanded, but continued to fly.On Jan. 11, 1945, one of the costliest days of the war, Watson crash landed his shot-up and burning plane in England. He survived. Others were not so lucky. Sixty U.S. bombers and some 600 crew were casualties that day.M.E. Anderson, founder of the popular Cathedrals Twitter account, is a Sporting News contributor.
