15 The All-American Professional Baseball League

16 How did the League get Started?
Many minor league teams disbanded by the fall of 1942 because of WWII Philip K. Wrigley had a solution to the loss of entertainment—the creation of a girls’ softball league Midwestern businessmen and Mr. Wrigley financially supported the All-American Girls Softball League that first emerged in the spring of 1943 Half-way through the first season, a board of trustees changed the leagues name to the All-American Girls Baseball League (AAGBBL) and at the end of the season the changed it again to the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League (AAGPBL) Henderson, James F. "A New American Sport: Excerpt From the 1947 Muskegon Lassies Year Book." Official Website of the AAGPBL AAGPBL. 21 May 2007 <http://www.aagpbl.org/articles/general.cfm?ID=8>. Lesko, Jeneane.

AAGPBL Players Association. 21 May 2007 <http://www.aagpbl.org/league/history.cfm>.

17 AAGPBL The women teams would play at the baseball fields when the men had away games Utilizing the parks by 50% Wrigley funded half the cost and budget expenses for each team, while the host cities funded the other half Teams consisted of 15 players, a manager, business manager, and woman chaperone Tryouts were set up in dozens of major cities, and scouts were sent to find women all over the US and Canada 280 were invited to attend a final tryout 60 were chosen to become the first women to play professional baseball Lesko, Jeneane.

AAGPBL Players Association. 21 May 2007 <http://www.aagpbl.org/league/history.cfm>.

18 AAGPBL cont. The league had the same rules as those in Major League baseball however the girls pitched underhand and the fields were shorter Overhand pitching and smaller ball sizes were soon adopted There would be 9 fielders like the MLB teams Players were paid in between $45 and $84 a week Although the league discontinued after 1954, it was recognized again in 1988 by the National Baseball Hall of Fame Henderson, James F. "A New American Sport: Excerpt From the 1947 Muskegon Lassies Year Book." Official Website of the AAGPBL AAGPBL. 21 May 2007 <http://www.aagpbl.org/articles/general.cfm?ID=8>. Lesko, Jeneane.

20 AAGPBL cont. At first, the women’s baseball league struggled
There were attempts to add pre-game entertainment, but the league was still failing to increase its attendance Wrigley originally thought that the war would force the MLB to disband When the men’s professional baseball league continued strong, Wrigley lost interest in the AAGPBL and sold it to Arthur Meyerhoff Attendance began to increase, and when the war ended—up to 10,000 people were in the crowd for a single game and 910,000 fans on July 4, 1948 The Leagues popularity resulted in…. Training teams The creation of rookie teams the Peaches, Belles, Blue Sox, and Comets could face Lesko, Jeneane. "League History." All-American Girls Professional Baseball League History. Ed.

22 League Rules of Conduct
Femininity was a high priority The Girls who played Professional Baseball were required to follow Management’s high standards Women may never wear slacks or shorts in public Players must have long hair “Lipstick should always be on” No foul language, smoking, or drinking “Baseball uniform skirts shall be no shorter than six inches above the knee-cap” Players may not “fraternize” with players from opposing teams Players were required to attend charm school for proper etiquette (which was discontinued in 1945), and they were supplied with a suggested beauty routine and workout exercises "League Rules of Conduct."

23 Why did the League Fail? Attendance and revenues began to decrease in 1949 The team directors bought the AAGPBL from Arthur Meyerhoff because they wanted to operate their teams independently The league had no centralized control of publicity, promotion, player procurement, and the player talent wasn’t evenly distributed Finding good women baseball players was also becoming difficult since the league would have to train skilled softball players As revenues fell, individual teams could no longer support rookie training teams, and advertisement was cut down The League discontinued after the 1954 season Lesko, Jeneane.

24 A League of Their Own There was a documentary call “A League of Their Own, the Documentary": written by Kelly Candaele, Helen Callaghan’s son (Helen Callaghan was a former player) He wrote the story in honor of his mother Helen, and his aunt, Marge Callaghan They were both Canadian, but the players weren’t a pitcher and catcher in real life The movie was a good portrayal in general Many women took the train from California to Chicago and then went to the various cities that formed the initial four teams of the league There was a lot of recruiting in Canada because Mr. Wrigley had scouting ties established in the area.

25 A League of Their Own cont.
The characters were  fiction but were inspired by some real athletes The third base coach in the movie was an actual player in the AAGPBL The chaperons and etiquette classes resembled players’ real experiences "AAGPBL FAQ." All-American Girls Professional Baseball League Players Association AAGPBL Players Association. 4 June 2007 <http://www.aagpbl.org/faq.cfm?qid=7>. They had to go to etiquette class in order be the desired "All-American Girl“ Although many players were in their early twenties, some were in their teens (as young as 15 years old)

26 Results of Women in Baseball…
Although the League itself failed, the AAGPBL gave over 600 women the opportunity to play professional baseball “This period represents one of the most unique aspects of our nation’s baseball history”—Jeneane Lesko Women not only supported the war by buying war bonds, and working in the factories and shops during WWII, they were also the athletes and form of entertainment

27 Results of Women in Baseball cont.
Women in Baseball may not have had an obvious effect on the nation but many later events prove that women aren’t going down looking Victoria Roche was the first girl to play in a Little League World Series (Williamsport, PA)—1984 Ila Borders was the first woman to pitch for a men's baseball team (played for Southern California College in Costa Mesa, California)—1994 Effa Manley was the first woman elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, N.Y (she was co-owner of the Newark Eagles, a Negro League team in the 1930s and 1940s)—2006
