Womens Baseball History

Signed out of California's competitive fast-pitch softball leagues

A fleet running outfielder, Pat Keagle played for the Grand Rapids Chicks of the AAGPBL during the mid-1940s. Keagle was selected as an All-Star in 1946 when she led all outfielders in the womens baseball league in hitting.

Right off-the-start, the media’s newspaper male writers liked what they saw and Pat Keagle quickly picked up the nickname – ‘the Blonde Bombshell’. Attendance rose from 1,600 per home game to well over 2,000 to see the young blonde outfielder.

Merle ‘Pat’ Keagle Grand Rapids Chicks Outfielder 1944-46, 1948.
