Women's Baseball History A durable mound star, Constance Wisniewski was one of the top pitchers in the All-American Girls Professional League.
As a rookie in 1944 with the Milwaukee Chicks her stunning 23-10 WL record helped the team win the Championship.
The next season after Milwaukee had financial difficulties she moved with the team to Grand Rapids, Michigan, and there she picked up her nickname - the Iron Woman. In 1945 Wisniewski captured the attention of league fans by pitching and winning two complete games of a twin-bill in 1945, and by chalking up a league-leading 32-11 record, compiled a mind-boggling 0.81earned run average... and was voted by the league's managers the 1945 Player of the Year. A five-time All-Star, she completed all 40 of her starts in 1946 and was named to the league's first All-Star game. In 1948 she switched to playing in the outfield and led all 10 teams in the then two-division AAGPBL in total advanced bases with 409 and in home runs, and was second in RBIs and finished 3rd with a .289 batting average.
