A collage of six Cuban players who were members of the All-American Girls Baseball League.

Clockwise from top left with seasons in the league in parenthesis: Isora del Castillo (1949-51), Mirtha Marrero (1948-53), Isabel Alvarez (1949-54), Luisa Gallegos (1948-49), Migdalia Perez (1948-54) and Gloria Ruiz (1948).

According to Cuban Ball, “Women were involved with Cuban baseball from the very beginning. First as fans and later as participants in women’s teams.”

At the Cuban Cultural Center of New York’s Aug. 20 congress on Cuban baseball history, Leslie Heaphy, an assistant history professor at Kent State University and author of Encyclopedia of Women and Baseball, gave a presentation on the history of women in Cuban baseball.

Isora del Castillo is the only women enshrined in the Cuban Baseball Hall of Fame, having been elected in 1997.

A week or so ago I was in a group discussion about the existence of African American Pinups in the 1940-60s and many people claimed that they surely just did NOT exist. I having done my research prior to the argument knew that this wasn’t true just because they were rare does not mean that they did NOT exist. So with the help of the internet I bring you proof that there were in fact beautiful black pinups in the era. This post is dedicated to shegivesgoodface
