A league of her own: Professional girls baseball league player to speak
SYCAMORE – In 1943, Philip K. Wrigley founded the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League. This was during World War II, and with the possibility that men’s baseball might be suspended, Wrigley decided that a woman’s league might be one way to prevent baseball franchises from losing money. Sycamore resident Betty Mullins was one of the women who played in the AAGPBL. She will she share her story at the Sycamore History Museum’s June 6 Brown Bag Lunch.
