Dorothy "Kammie" Kamenshek (PT, '58) played for the Rockford Peaches of the All-American Girls Baseball League in the 1940s and early '50s. Kamenshek was the only player to be recruited by a men's team, led the league with a .292 career batting average and was considered the best player in professional women's baseball. In the movie A League of Their Own, it has been speculated that Geena Davis' character was loosely based on Kamenshek.
