1947 All Star Team Summary

The All-Stars above were selected as the entire 1947 season All-Stars, and they did not play together in an all-Star Game.

However, during the 1947 post season championship play-offs, League administrators organized two "All-Star" teams from the four second division teams to play a series of seven games in Chicago, two games in Louisville, Kentucky, and one game in Battle Creek, Michigan between September 5 and the end of the month. Three games between East and West All-Stars were played at Chicago's Gill Stadium located at 87th Street and Greenwood Avenue. A benefit game for the National Jewish Hospital in Denver, Colorado was played at Comiskey Park on September 8. and three games were played at North Town Stadium located at Devon and Kedzie Avenues beginning September 9th.

In the singular game at Comiskey Park, The West All-Stars defeated the East All-Stars 3-2.  According to the Chicago Daily Tribune (9/9/1947), it was the fourth straight victory in the All-Star series for the West. A home run by Audrey Wagner with one on in the seventh inning accounted for the East's runs, and Faye Dancer's homer with two on accounted for the West's win.  In this game, the East's battery include pitcher Jean Cione and catcher Dorothy Naum, while Dorothy Mueller pitched and Mary Rountree caught for the West.
