Women in Baseball Research Committee



The Women in Baseball Committee was formed in 1990 to study the role of women in various aspects of professional baseball.

The committee is concerned with topics including the All American Girls Professional Baseball League (AAGPBL), in existence from 1943-1954, and the female barnstorming teams of the 19th and 20th centuries. Another concern is the history of women's involvement in baseball as officials and team owners. The committee publishes two newsletters a year.
