Donatelli Memorial Day Tribute

National League Umpire Augie Donatelli was a B-17 gunner who participated in the first daylight air raid of Berlin. Donatelli's aircraft was knocked out of the sky and he was forced to bail out and subsequently avoided capture. The biography details what transpired, and the video below is archival footage of the historic raid that made a huge psychological impact on the war effort.
