2019 AAGPBL Reunion

Players, a bat girl, family, and fans of all generations recently gathered for the 30th reunion of the All American Girls Professional Baseball League in Syracuse, NY from September 18 – 22, 2019. 

The reunion included a bus trip to the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, NY where players shared their experiences with school students, toured the Diamond Dreams: Women in Baseball exhibit and viewed items from the league in the archives.  Read more about their visit on the Hall of Fame’s website.

The reunion culminated with a banquet featuring key note speaker Jean Afterman, Senior Vice President and Assistant General Manager of the New York Yankees.  The evening also featured many presentations and awards, the highlight of which was the unveiling of a sculpture honoring Pennny Marshall, who produced and directed A League of Their Own, which illuminated the history of the league to the U.S. and the world beginning in 1992.  Penny’s daughter Tracy Reiner and Sculptor Bridgette Mongeon assisted with the unveiling.

More about Reunions

The first national AAGPBL Reunion was held in 1982 as a result of players and fans reconnecting through mailings and local mini-reunions.  Former player June Peppas, who co-owned a printing company, created a mailing list of players through the publication of a newsletter designed to locate players and culminate in a reunion.  With the help and energy of  South Bend bat girl Ruth Davis, that first national reunion was held in Chicago during the summer of 1982.  From the very beginning, the players welcomed fans and everyone who had a role in the league to their events.  That tradition, including public autograph sessions and media coverage, continues today.  Associate members and volunteers continue to make each reunion a memorable experience through planning and hard work.
