When Women Ruled Baseball, 18” wide x 22” high, 2014

I grew up listening to Vince Scully on the radio (LA Dodgers). Both my daughters played softball, and I am a long time Oakland Athletics season-ticket holder. When I heard about the WWII Quilt Challenge, this seemed a logical subject fitting my background and experience. I made the home-plate regulation-sized, and screen-printed and hand-appliqued the baseball mitt and ball. The AWSL holds copyrights on most photos and images from the era, so finding this non-AWSL photo was key. I was able to reprint this photo with permission from Melvin Porter, who made it.
