We never even thought about going to college, because there was no money for college. We were so poor we couldn't afford the newspaper. But one day in the spring of 1947, I was reading the day old sports page at the country store... that day I read about a traveling All American Girls baseball team going to play in Oklahoma City on the way back north from spring training. I never dreamed such a league existed. I dropped a postcard to the sports editor, and he sent my card to the lerague's headquarters in Chicago. Pretty soon I got a letter asking me to come to Oklahoma City for a try-out.' Beans Risinger played six seasons in the AAGBL 1948-1953. ===============================================
