Alice Blaski Seasonal Batting Record
Alice Blaski, third baseman with the Wallingford, Connecticut Owlettes Championship Softball Team in the early 1950s made the grade with the Fort Wayne Daisies in 1953 and 1954. She was discovered by an AAGPBL scout when the Owlettes played in a championship tournament in Canada. Coach Bill Allington converted her from a third baseman to a right fielder for the Daisies. She slammed her first home run against the South Bend Blue Sox in June 1953 to help the Daisies extend their win streak to 10 games. Alice and Edith Barney were the only two softball players from Connecticut to join the AAGPBL.
After the league folded, Alice went on to graduate with a business administration degree from Larsen College in Hamden, CT. and from the Elm City Beauty Academy in New Haven, CT. She then became the co-proprietor/operator of the West Harwich, MA. Beauty Shop until her death from breast cancer in 1974.
