We recently covered Vada Corbus, a woman ballplayer who sought to play for the Joplin Miners. By the permission of John Kovach, college archivist at St. Mary’s College, we secured a much better photograph of the near trailblazer. The photograph comes from Mr. Kovach’s book, Women’s Baseball, (Images of Baseball). For more on women in baseball, check and see if the traveling exhibit, “Linedrives and Lipstick: The Untold Story of Women’s Baseball,” is coming near you (or arrange to have it visit your local museum or history institution!).
