Bates/Parker: This Week in Baseball History podcast: A League Almost Their Own

From SABR members Mike Bates and Bill Parker at This Week in Baseball History podcast on July 5, 2018:

The All American Girls Professional Baseball League gave women an unprecedented chance to organize and play professional baseball. But, as special guest Britni de la Cretaz (@Britnidlc) points out, it also worked to obscure its queer players with rigid “femininity standards” and rules against fraternization. Using obituaries and an amazingly timed interview, Britni was able to recover some of that lost history before it’s gone forever, and discusses it with Mike and Bill. Also, happy birthday to George Cuppy and Lance Johnson.
