The Dinsmore Women in Baseball Exhibit presented by Rosie Reds explores the multi-faceted and impactful contributions women and girls have made and are making to America’s National Pastime as players, fans, broadcasters, writers, coaches, managers, owners and executives. It is a story that dates to the early days of the organized game and one that continues to evolve in the present day. The exhibit explores the many obstacles women and girls have overcome and still struggle against to be a part of the game they love, and highlights many of the groundbreaking individuals, achievements and events that serve as inspiration to all those striving to make a dream come true.
