Elmhurst Girls Baseball, 1974-1975

Seeking players and coaches who were a part of the Elmhurst Girls Baseball League in 1974-75!!!

   My name is John Kovach and I am a baseball historian interested in speaking with former players/coaches from the Elmhurst Girls Baseball League. I am hoping with enough interest to create a documentary about the league.

  I have a number of photographs taken on opening day in 1974. However, none are identified :(. Would love to know who these girls are! I will be posting a few of the images I have.

  If you played or coached or had anything to do with the league, please feel free to email me at Knucksie1@aol.com
