Today is National Women in Baseball Day (not to be confused with National Girls and Women in Sports Day, February 6, or Women’s Baseball Day, September 11). The day marks the day – May 30, 1943 – that the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League played their first game. The first games were played in Rockford and Racine, with the South Bend Blue Sox playing the Rockford Peaches and the Kenosha Comets facing the Racine Belles.
