Today the Cardinals celebrated 3 of baseball’s finest from the St. Louis area- and these players never even wore the Birds on the Bat. Audrey Kissel, Erma Bergmann and Barbara Hoffman played in the All American Girls Professional Baseball League which inspired the 1992 film “A League of Their Own.” Kiss, Bergie and Barb played a combined 9 seasons in the women’s professional baseball league which existed from 1943 to 1954. Erma even threw a no-hitter back on May 22, 1947. Audrey and Barbara, along with the Bergmann family, surprised Erma for her 90th birthday by bringing her to Busch to throw out the ceremonial pitch. These women are truly still in a league of their own.
