    I collect early postcards of women playing sports, including baseball. You can see some of the images here:

    Wow. How times have changed. How in the world did this woman play baseball in a dress? Can you imagine sliding in a dress? The only thing that even resembles baseball in this day and age is the bat. Although extremely different, it amazes me that women were allowed to play baseball in 1911.
