Patricia Barringer Seasonal Batting Record
FORMER MUSKEGON LASSIE TURNED CHAPERONE/MANAGER DID IT ALL FOR THE LEAGUE
After a year at second base for the Lassies in 1947, Pat agreed to manage and chaperone the Colleens Rookie Touring Team in 1949 and '50. They toured all over the United States and Canada playing exhibition games with the Sallies to promote and recruit women playing baseball to support the League.
Pat's fondest memory of those "glory days" was an exhibition game by the touring Colleens and Sallies in Yankee Stadium before a Yankees vs. Philadelphia Athletics' game in August 1950. She was managing the Colleens and the legendary Connie Mack, the Athletics' manager, sat in the dugout with her.
Pat also served as chaperone for the 1951 and 1952 Battle Creek Belles, and the 1953 Muskegon Belles.
Anatural athlete, Pat once held the national AAU swimming record and trained under former Olympian, Johnny Weismuller. She also enjoyed waterskiing, snowmobiling and bowling.
After retiring from baseball, Pat spent thirty years in the financial field as an auditor and tax accountant. She resided in Port Charlotte, FL for the last 20 years of her life.
