RIP Dorothy Kemanshek

The Logan

A.K.A. Dottie Kemanshek, the basis of the character Dottie from "A League of Their Own", who also served as a technical advisor for the movie




From Wikipedia:


Kamenshek played in the AAGPBL for 10 seasons, and was selected as an All-Star all seven times the league established such a team. In 1946 she was the league's top batter with an average of .316 (a single point ahead of Audrey Wagner), and won the distinction again in 1947 with an average of .306. She struck out only 81 times in 3,736 at-bat appearances.


That last bit is pretty damn impressive
