Profile Biography

Jean was considered the greatest second baseman in the league. Not only was a graceful fielder but she was also a heavy hitter, hitting close to .300. Jean hit a booming homerun her very first time up in the league. Not many runners were left on when Jean came to the plate.  In the off-season Jean enjoyed roller skating and entertained the idea of skating in the roller derby. An All-Star, she continued to play with Allington's All-Stars after the league folded. This was a barn storming team that traveled the country playing games. Jean married and moved to Coldwater , Michigan where she had a family and continued to play fast pitch softball at a high level. On a personal note, this Associate Member, had the chance to play against her when she was about forty. She was a great fielding shortstop and a hitter to be feared.
