New AAGPBL set available

I have created a new All-American Girls Professional Baseball League set. Made famous by the movie “A League of Their Own” this set contains the 1945 season with 6 teams plus you get 5 All-Time Great teams (1944 Milwaukee Chicks, 1946 Racine Belles, 1949 Rockford Peaches, 1951 South Bend Blue Sox and the 1953 Fort Wayne Daisies).

The 1945 season contains some of the greats of the league like Dottie Kamenshek (Geena Davis’ character Dottie was based on), Helen Callaghan (Casey Candaele’s mom), Sophie Kurys (115 SBs), Dottie Collins (29-10, 0.83 ERA), Connie “Polish Rifle” Wisniewski (32-11, 0.81 ERA), Helen Fox (24-19, 1.34 ERA), Carolyn Morris (28-12, 1.08 ERA) and many more Hall-of Famers. Pitching rules the day in 1945 as the league ERA was around 2.00 and the league batting average was .199. The rules were still for underhand fast pitch but with some baseball rules.

The All-Time great teams has some of the best players seasons ever. In 1944 manager Max Carey has the team stealing at every chance with Vickie Panos (.263, 141 SBs), Pat Keagle (.264, 122 SBs), Tiby Eisen (.204, 91 SBs), Doris Tetzlaff (.212, 101 SBs) and Alma Ziegler (.191, 77SBs) as Jo Kabick won 26 games and Connie Wisniewski won 23. 1946 Racine’s secondbasewoman Sophie Kurys hit .286 and stole 201 bases!, while teammate Jo Winter won 33 games and Anna Hutchison won 26. By 1951 pitching was overhand and the batting was catching up to pitching. South Bend featured “Shorty” Pryer (.312, 129 SBs), Betty Wagoner (.272, 50 SBs) and Shoo-Shoo” Wirth (.274, 69 SBS) at the top of the order with pitcher-3B Jean Faut (15-7, 1.33 ERA) leading the staff. The 1953 Fort Wayne Daisies had the 3 Weaver sisters leading the way with Betty (Weaver) Foss (.312, 80 SBs), Jo Weaver (.346, 70 SBs, 76 RBI) and Jean Weaver (7-1, 2.46 ERA) and the pitching staff had three 16 game winners in Max Kline, Pat Scott and Jaynne Bittner.
