Ten former players from the League attended a Special Night Out at Wrigly. The Chicago Cubs MLB Club gave away 20,000 bobblehead dolls to spectators at the game. The doll depicted the AAGPBL players in skirted uniform. One player from the 1942 Racine Belles, Betsy Jochum and one player from the 1954 Grand Rapids Chicks, Jeneane Lesko, threw out the first pitch(s)- representing all the teams from the beginning of the League in 1942 to the final year of play in 1954. Several players from various years in the League, led by Dolly Konwinski, were given the honor of singing the Baseball signature song "Take Me Out To lhe Ball Game" from the Announcer's booth. All the former players were treated to hot dogs and a great hard-fought baseball game with the Cubs winning in overtime over the Marlins

Another Great Time in the Sun in Southern California. Over 700 fans participated in the autograph signing and showing of the movie "a League of Their Own" on the USS Midway to meet the Legandary Ladies who were the players depicted in the now famous movie. Director of ""A League of Their Own", Penny Marshall, was made an honorary member of the Association and shared her memories about the making the movie which was both emotional and entertaining. She was accompanied by members of the cast who also spoke and related their joy in being a part of the cast that was able to reveal this unique part of baseball history to the world. Many thanks to all the friends and families who came to share this time with all of us in San Diego and our faithful Associate members, players and their friends and family members, who all worked so long and hard to make this event possible for all of us to enjoy.
Local hometown women's baseball enthusiast, Rob Novotny, coach and manager for the Aussie Hearts Women's Baseball Teams, continues to bring women and young girls who love to play baseball, from Australia to the Midwest to visit the towns, play on the fields and meet the women that are the legacy of women's professional baseball. The Aussie Hearts won the American sponsored women's baseball tournament in 2008 at Horlick Field in Kenosha and received a warm welcome from the American Teams and the former players of the AAGPBL who attended the re-dedication of their field that year and supported the accompanying tournament. Rob currently resides in Australia, but returns with his teams to America each year. Women's baseball and softball tours to the Midwest and Canada have become a popular tour, arranged and supported by Rob and his coaching staff.
