The AAGPBL-PA is a nonprofit organization and all funds donated or collected as membership dues go to the operation of the Association, maintenance of its website, the printing of its Newsletter, the organization of its annual reunion and membership meeting, and its support and promotion of modern girls' and women's baseball.
The AAGPBL produces a Newsletter called TOUCHING BASES three times each year, and these are mailed to all members. The purpose of the Newsletter is to keep members informed about past and up-coming events, awards, honors, special dedications, and special team and member articles, including photos of today and yesteryear. The Newsletter serves as an open line of communication for members to share their special moments with articles and letters. An effort is made to keep members in close contact and to keep an on-going account of illnesses and deaths of players, all members, and their families.
The AAGPBL Players Association is seeking the assistance of family members to provide information to help locate some of the former players. Over 640 girls/women played in the League during its 12 year history. Over one hundred of these individuals have never been located. If you know of someone who played in this League, check the Player / Profile Search section to be sure they are properly listed and the information is correct. Please contact us to relay any information you can provide.
In some cases, Grants of Permission are required for newly located players, or from families of deceased players, to have baseball cards made to honor them. Any information that can be provided to complete the Association's records will be appreciated.
Important: The Players Association requests that anyone having memorabilia of former players in this League please contact us to learn of ways to properly protect these items. In the event of the death of a player, contact us so the Players Association can notify former teammates and other members of their passing. The Players Association works with the Archives at The History Center in South Bend, Indiana and The National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York to preserve the memory and memorabilia of former players.
This award was established in 2013 as the Victory Vanguard Award to recognize exemplary service by a Charter Member (Player or League Personnel). The title was changed in 2016 in honor of the passing of former player June Peppas who was instrumental in reconnecting the players at the first National Reunion in Chicago in 1982 and establishing the AAGPBL Players Association in 1987.
This award was established in 2014, and it recognizes exemplary service by associate members who supported the league and the Players Association.
