1943 All Star Team Summary


  The first night game at Wrigley Field was -- not in 1988!   It was between the All-Stars of the AAGPBL on July 1,1943, under portable light.It featured the Kenosha and Racine All-Stars vs. the Rockford and South Bend All-Stars. The four teams of this new League were well represented in a WWII WAAC recruiting rally exhibition game.

 Managers for the teams were John "Josh" Billings for the Kenosha & Racine team and Edward "Eddie" Stumpf for the Rockford & South Bend team.  [The Chicago Tribune sports pages, July 1-2,1943: Kenosha Evening News sports pages, June 24 and July 2,1943.]

Currently there are no records available to indicate that an All-Star Team was recognized during the 1944 and 1945 seasons.
