Profile Biography

Ann stated she loved playing in the league, but travel was one of the primary reasons.   She had never been outside the Chicago area and was very grateful to have the opportunity to travel.  She went to 27 different states while playing baseball. She left the league, she stated, to get a "real job."  She did play fast pitch softball with the Bloomer Girls in Chicago since they were night games and didn't interfere with her work.

Ann retired in 1992, played golf and pickle ball and still enjoyed traveling, including her trip in 2006 to  Cooperstown, NY, to attend the unveiling of the  commerative statue of an AAGPBL batter in honor of the League.
