    Maybelle Blair & Shirley Berkovich of the AAGPBL, 11-11-19

    Maybelle Blair & Shirley Berkovich of the AAGPBL, 11-11-19

    Lew talks with two of the grand ladies of the All American Girls Professional Baseball League, Maybelle Blair and Shirley Berkovich.  The AAGPBL was founded in 1943, by Cubs owner, Phillip Wrigley.  There weren't any professional baseball games during World War II.  All of the available men, including professional baseball players, were called to serve their country.  So, Wrigley filled the void with the best women baseball players that scouts could find!  Scouts found Maybelle in the then, far away town of Inglewood, California.  She quickly became a fan favorite, and never backed away from a challenge, or a good time!  Currently, Maybelle is raising funds for the International Woman's Baseball Center Museum in Rockford, Illinois.  Her goal was to raise $9,400 for her 94th birthday.  She has raised about $15,000!  Help Maybelle's dream come true by donating to

    Shirley came to the AAGPBL from a dairy town in Pennsylvania, in the latter years of the league, which folded in 1953.

    "Play Ball, Not Work Ball". Mike, "The Hitman", Easler talks about Lou Brock, Tom Seaver and Willy Stargell

    "Play Ball, Not Work Ball". Mike, "The Hitman", Easler talks about Lou Brock, Tom Seaver and Willy Stargell

    "We Are Family", the hit song by Sister Sledge, rocked Three Rivers Stadium with that song after every World Series win in 1979, where the Pittsburgh Pirates overcame a future Hall of Fame Baltimore Orioles pitching staff.

    Mike Easler was one of the important members of that family, as a rookie, who spent ten years in the minors before getting his chance.  And, boy, did he ever make an impression that lasts to this day, 40 years later!

    The Hitman runs numerous baseball and hitting clinics throughout the US, including The Vaughn Academy, founded by Mo Vaughn, in Boca Raton, Florida.  It's a place where kids can work hard, and play free.  https://vaughnsportsacademy.com/
