Emil Adler played on an amateur baseball team in Nebraska before entering the service.
The following article from 2006 is about a plaque on which can be found his name.

 

Rosenblatt Stadium war memorial plaque

A World War II memorial that had hung at Rosenblatt Stadium was discarded years before the stadium
was shut down. Now, the plaque, which lists 40 names of Omaha amatuer baseball players -- including
Iowa Heisman Trophy winner Nile Kinnick -- who died in World War II, is about to resurface.
Some S.O.B's -- South Omaha Boys -- came into possession of the plaque and raised money to display it
at historic Brown Park, a South Omaha ballfield where the men all played in the 1930s and which recently
has been renovated to the tune of $1 million. Organizers are looking for descendants to participate in
an Aug. 14 dedication ceremony.
