WSC All-Stars: Tony Cuccinello 1945

Card #22 - Tony Cuccinello

For the first time since the inaugural All-Star game in 1933, the All-Star game was cancelled. Due to wartime travel restrictions for World War II, the 1945 All-Star game was cancelled on April 24, 1945.

No players were ever "officially" selected to the All-Star rosters, but the Associated Press and The Sporting News selected their own roster, so fans could dream about the All-Star game that never was.

Tony Cuccinello was selected as the starting third baseman for this fantasy game. Tony was selected two other times as an All-Star. Once in 1933 with the Brooklyn Dodgers and once in 1938 with the Boston Bees.
