Mabel Holle Signed Baseball South Bend Blue Sox – COA JSAGo Back
Mabel B. Holle [“Holly”] (March 21, 1920 – December 11, 2011) was an American infielder and outfielder who played in the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League during the 1943 season. She batted and threw right-handed. Mabel Holle was one of the sixty original players to join the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League for its inaugural season. Basically a line-drive hitter, she had a strong throwing arm and was a sure fielder at third base, center field, and right field. Since 1988 she is part of Women in Baseball, a permanent display based at the Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, New York, which was unveiled to honor the entire All-American Girls Professional Baseball League.
The All-American Girls Professional Baseball League (AAGPBL) was a professional women’s baseball league founded by Philip K. Wrigley which existed from 1943 to 1954. The AAGPBL is the forerunner of women’s professional league sports in the United States. Over 600 women played in the league. It was not really a well-known fact until filmmaker Penny Marshall premiered her 1992 film A League of Their Own.
Presented is an unofficial MacGregor baseball autographed by Mobel Holle. She signed it “Mabel Holle RF (right field) South Bend Blue Sox 1943” on left of the sweet spot in black ballpoint pen (“8”).
