During World War II, while most men were drafted, the The All-American Girls Professional Baseball League was founded. The fear was that if baseball was delayed, the American public would lose interest. The league was active between 1943-1954, and was quite popular.
The most successful team was the Rockford Peaches, who were the focus of the popular film A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN, which presents a fictional account of the team and the League's history.
