Her smoothness and grace in fielding ground balls was overshadowed only by her powerful throwing arm. Cubs' manager Charlie Grimm described Dottie as a $50,000 player if she were a boy.

Schroeder spent the majority of her time with the Daisies while holding down this key shortstop position. She was a mere 14 yrs. old when she started playing in the league. Dottie twin was her brother, Don.
