Eilaine Roth worked in Sterile Product Inspection, retiring
in 1988. I can remember seeing her sometimes as I walked
through Building 41 on my way from Building 259 to the B41
cafeteria for lunch. Long before working at Upjohn, Eilaine was a
player in the
All American Girls Professional Baseball League that started
during World War II, when all mens baseball was canceled.
She played for
the Peoria Redwings during 1948 and 1949. Then she
played for the Kalamazoo Lassies from 1950 to
1951. She was known for her bunting. The Lassies became league champions in 1951 by winning
the playoffs in the last game of the last season of the league. The movie "A
League of Their Own" is an entertaining story of
the All American Girls Professional Baseball League.
