About the1949 Springfield Sallies

17

The Springfield Sallies were a part of the league's innovation to recruit new players. Two teams of "Rookies" would travel together over much of the eastern half of the United States playing exhibitions against each other.

The “Rookie teams, The Springfield Sallies and the Chicago Coleens, made up one of the tours. The tour gave these new recruits an opportunity to play and also gave the league the opportunity to develop new players and let the cities all across America know about the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League. And show case that women were playing baseball in America

The tour was successful and was repeated in 1950.
