Quote

Thelma Eisen: “We’re trying to record this so we’ll have our place in history.”

Thelma "Tiby" Eisen

“We’re trying to record this so we’ll have our place in history. It’s important to keep our baseball league in the limelight. It gets pushed into the background, so people almost don’t know it happened. Women have been pushed into the background forever. If they know about our league, perhaps in the future some women will say, ‘Hey, maybe we can do it again.’”

– Thelma Eisen, professional football and baseball player in the 1940s. This quote is from 1993, when she helped establish the women’s exhibit at the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown.
