Phyllis Koehn Seasonal Batting Record
PHYLLIS "SUGAR" KOEHN" (9/15/1922-5/28/2007)
Phyllis was a reliable pitcher who had her best year in 1946 with the South Bend Blue Sox. That year she pitched in 39 games and finished the season with 22 wins and 15 loses. Racine was a strong contester in a field of eight teams. They finished 3rd behind first place Racine and second place Grand Rapids, but only missed the pennant by a three game spread between the three leading teams. She started out with Kenosha as one of the top outfielders in the league. As a member of Racine she not only pitched but she also played third, first and in the outfield. With her great knowledge of the game she became a valuable asset to the Belles.
"Sugar" was not only a force to be reckoned with on the mound, she was a timely hitter with an 8-year lifetime ERA of .200.
