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, which consisted of eventually 10 teams located in the American Midwest. In 1948, league attendance peaked at over 900,000 spectators. The most successful team, the Rockford Peaches, won a league-best four championships. The 1992 motion picture A League of Their Own is a mostly fictionalized account of the early days of the league and its stars.
Presented is an unofficial Rawlings baseball autographed by Mary Pratt. He signed it on the sweet spot in aged black felt pen (“7”) and she also inscribed the team’s name ( Rockford Peaches). The ball itself shows toning from age.
