The All-American Girls Professional Baseball League was an all-female professional baseball league that was begun by Philip Wrigley in 1943 and stayed active until 1954. The women chosen to play in the new league were serious athletes on the field who were expected to be beautiful and ladylike at all other times. These special women were successful on both counts.
