#Shortstops: Pearl Harbor and Moe Berg
So wrote Moe Berg, atop a note dated Dec. 7, 1941, the day that Japanese troops attacked the U.S. Navy base at Pearl Harbor. The following day, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt delivered a speech to a joint session of the U.S. Congress, when he uttered the now-immortal line “This is a day which will live in infamy,” and Congress issued a declaration of war immediately thereafter.
