Profile Biography


Mary was born in Lemon Grove, California, youngest of a large family. They lived on a horse farm. Two of her older brothers taught her how to play baseball.   From childhood, she rode horses, competed in rodeos, races, and barrell races.  She proudly rode in parades from her teens into her 30's.  Her high school yearbook described her as: the "outdoor type --- enjoys riding horses."  She participated in softball, speedball, basketball, and volleyball while in school.  She married Geoarge Gagnon on Nov. 20, 1943, and they were divorced Sept. 4, 1947.

Mary dryland farmed in Romoland and Hemet California for 17 years, taking a break in 1948 to pitch for the Rockford Peaches, who were Champions that year.  She developed a sore arm, so had to quit the team.

In the early 1950s, she pitched a few "no hitters" while playing on different softball teams which travelled up the West Coast from San Diego to Portland Oregon.  In 1953, she was on the San Diego Slick Chicks Team.   In 1956 she played in the World Softball Championship Games.
