EDEN VALLEY IS LOOKING FOR INFORMATION ON OHIO WOMEN WHO PLAYED BASEBALL DURING WWII

With the success of YOU CAN'T PLAY BALL IN A SKIRT!, we are considering putting together a new program about Ohio Women ball players. We have compiled a list of women from Ohio who played ball with the All-American Professional Baseball League of WWII. If you know these ladies (or how to contact them or their families) or have personal stories to share about them, please contact us directly to share your stories.
