Profile Biography

Abby played with the Alameda,CA girls softball team and was a key component of that team in capturing two World Championships. She was recruited by the AAGPBL in 1946 and was moved around the league that year playing for three different Clubs.  In 1947 she was assigned to the Fort Wayne Daisies where she really got the opportunity to show she was not only a clutch hitter, but had a sure hand with the glove at second base.  Abby led the league that year for 2nd basemen with a fielding average of .978. Her favorite hobbies are sculpturing and modeling in clay.
