The arena was roaring with excitement as the Philadelphia flyers took on their rival- the Pittsburgh penguins. Sidney Crosby was in the building. Claude Giroux was in the building. Y/N’s best friend Carter Hart and boyfriend Kevin Hayes were in the building. The flyers were definitely the team to watch this season, they had been having a great string of wins and were well on their way to wining the Stanley cup.
The playoffs were starting soon which meant that every game counted. Both teams knew this as they took the ice- skating around the rink and warming-up before the game. Doing some fan service here and there.
Oakland, California - Flapper Ball players of Niles swat their way to their victory over Oakland.
The most well-known role women have played in baseball came during World War II when a professional women’s baseball league, the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League, was formed. The league, made famous by the movie, A League of Their Own, provided a sense of normalcy on the home front and protected against total collapse of Major League Baseball. Baseball, America’s pastime, has a long and storied history. One major aspect of that history, women’s participation in the sport, is often overlooked.
From its infancy, women have played a large role in the sport’s development and integration into American culture. As early as the 1860s, women were playing baseball on college campuses, in industrial leagues, through local community groups, and on barnstorming teams. The very first team at any level to be paid to play baseball was an all-female African American team, the Philadelphia Dolly Vardens.
Prior to World War II, during the 1920’s and 1930’s, women played baseball in junior and minor leagues throughout the United States. In 1930, Universal News highlighted a minor league game played between Niles and Oakland in a story titled, All-Girls Teams in Slug-fest as Niles beats Oakland 27-4. While the story captions focus mostly on the players’ looks, the footage shows their true athleticism.
Last week, in an effort to help those businesses that are still open, the Asian American Chamber Commerce for Greater Philadelphia launched its “Asian Eats” campaign. So far, nearly 20 Asian-owned restaurants and grocery stores in Philadelphia and Montgomery and Camden counties have signed up to participate in the initiative.
“This campaign is to encourage Asian businesses to continue their services through social media, not only for the current situation, but to continue providing such services during the recovery period,” Narasimha Shenoy, the chamber’s president and CEO, said in a statement. “Keeping these jobs is crucial to the community as well as the health of our economy.”
