Let's Play Ball !

Women's Pro Baseball Blog Button

Recently, here at the Studio, a button was offered which reads, "Art is a manly sport." (which see in our right hand column)

The fact that it is, of course, is obvious to anybody with sense, as both women and men do enjoy getting creative with color or objects, etc.

Women, likewise, can enjoy playing or watching sports, just like men. To even the odds, or to bring things into balance again, the new button is all about women playing pro sports.

In this country, from 1943 to 1954, a few rare women played a form of supported major league baseball that has yet to be repeated. For more information on the subject, you can go HERE and HERE. (I like the second link the best) Though they got called girls, and even were sometimes jeered at from the stands for not being male players, they were women playing hard and fast ballgames.

In honor of the feminine sport enthusiasts among us, the Studio is now prepared to offer you a new button. It is a sort of answer to the prior button about art being manly as well as being feminine.

The photo being used in the button offered below, is of pro player, Dorothy "Dottie" Schroeder. You can find out more about her HERE, and a little bit in the video above.

Attribution for the Public Domain photo may be found beneath her photo HERE. According to her bio, she played for the full 12 seasons--and was singular in having done so.

So, let's do what Dottie was saying in her photograph and "Play Ball!" with our
Happy Creativity!

I think that our United States Postal System really ought to make an actual postage stamp set of these famous women.
Though I have yet to see them do so, I really hope they one day will.
