Women’s Baseball Day is an American holiday dedicated to women’s baseball. This game is one of the most popular in the USA. It is celebrated annually on September 11th.
Women’s Baseball Day has its roots in 1875. Then, on September 11, the first baseball game between women’s teams took place. Cash prizes were awarded to the winners through paid entrance for the fans.
Much later, in 1934, the All-American Women’s Professional Baseball League was created, which lasted until 1954. Since 2004, women’s teams have been eligible to participate in the World Championships in this sport.
- The first match was held in the American Springfield.
- The names of the two teams in this match emphasized the confrontation between them: ‘Blondes’ and ‘Brunettes’.
- Women’s baseball began to spread from 1866, when the first teams were assembled at Vassar College.
- The 1875 match helped develop baseball in general and attracted new players among the female population.
