Norma Berger Signed Baseball Springfield Sallies – COA JSAGo Back
Presented is an unofficial MacGregor baseball autographed by Norma Berger. She signed it on the sweet spot in black ballpoint pen (“9”).
Norma Berger (Taylor) is a former pitcher who played in the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League during the 1950 season. Berger was nicknamed “Bergie״. Listed at 5 ft 3 in, 140 lb, she batted and threw right-handed. Norma Berger followed in the footsteps of Barbara Berger, her older sister, a catcher who played in parts of two seasons. The Berger sisters played baseball and basketball together during their childhood years, like the sisters depicted in the Penny Marshall 1992 film A League of Their Own, though Margaret and Norma never competed against each other in the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League. In 1988, the Berger sisters received recognition when the Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, New York, dedicated a permanent display to the entire league rather than any individual player.
The All-American Girls Professional Baseball League folded in 1954, but there is now a permanent display at the Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum at Cooperstown, New York since November 5, 1988, that honors those who were part of this unique experience.
