Title A Special Chronology for Early Female Play
Issue

Protoball's Chronology includes about 1500 key events in the evolution of base ball, but this far (2020) it has fewer than a dozen accounts of female play in the United States up to the Civil War.  In contrast, there are nearly 30 cases of known female play in England for this period.

The search

Deb Shattuck's book Bloomer Girls has much new information on the pioneering women players, and we think is will enrich the Protoball data base.  One goal might be to fashion a Chronology on early women's ballplaying in the US.
