Best Answer

In order of popularity:





Horse Racing

Track and Field
During World War II, baseball was popularized. Many American's participated in watching baseball games on their brand new television sets or their radios.

However, baseball during World War II was not only men because many of the men went off to war. Women actually took over in the major leagues for a while and were forced to play in skirts. This is well shown in the movie A League of Their Own.
