Eileen Albright All-American Girls Professional Baseball League Pitcher Born: Wollaston, Quincy, Massachusetts Bats: Right Throws: Right statistics Win–loss record       0-4 Earned run average     2.46 Strikeouts        10 Bases on balls        19 Innings pitched     22.0 Teams Chicago Colleens (1948) Eileen Alderfer Albright was a female infielder pitcher who played in the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League. Albright batted and threw right-handed. She was born in Wollaston, Quincy, Massachusetts. Little is known about this player who appeared in a few games in an AAGPBL season. Albright joined the league's travelling team in 1948 in order to develop her skills and be placed on one of the expansion teams for that season. Basically, she played at second and third bases and pitched as well. She obtained the job and was assigned to the Chicago Colleens, who along with the Springfield Sallies joined as expansion teams for the 1948 season. Albright pitched primarily for the Colleens and started four games, which were all losses. As a hitter, she went 2-for-16 for a .125 batting average. By the end of 1948, the Colleens and Sallies lost their franchises based on their awful debuts. For the next two years the Colleens and Sallies became rookie training teams that played exhibition games and recruited new talent as they toured through the South and East. Highlights of these tours included contests at Griffith Stadium in Washington, D.C. and Yankee Stadium in New York. History facts During the early 1940s the AAGPBL recruited young women to play baseball to keep the spirit of the game alive while the men fought overseas. The league, created in 1943 by the Chicago Cubs' owner Philip K. Wrigley, gave over 600 women athletes the opportunity to play professional baseball and to play it at a level never before attained. The AAGPBL folded in 1954, but there is now a permanent display at the Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum since November 5, 1988 that honors those who were part of this unforgettable experience. Eileen Albright, along with the rest of the AAGPBL players, is now enshrined in the venerable building at Cooperstown, New York. In 1992, filmmaker Penny Marshall premiered her film A League of Their Own, which was a fictionalized account of activities in the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League. Starring Geena Davis, Tom Hanks, Madonna, Lori Petty and Rosie O'Donnell, this film brought a rejuvenated interest to the extinct AAGPBL. Many baseball historians consider the league's players as pioneers of an important movement which has eventually brought women's athletics to the prominent place it occupies in the 21st century.
