The 2019 World Series has Jack and Lauren in the mood to tell a story from baseball history! From 1943 to 1954, American families turned up at ballparks to watch a different kind of baseball game. From the outside, the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League was all about short skirts and lipstick. But after just a few games it became clear: these young women were true American athletes.
