The Marvelous Miss Myrtle Rowe

Myrtle Rowe

Shortly before Miss Rowe, eighteen, posed for this photograph, The New York Times reported that she had signed to play first base for the Antler Athletic Club of New Kensington, a men's semiprofessional team near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

The Times noted that "this is Miss Rowe's third year with the Antlers and both her fielding and batting averages are said to rank toward the top of the semiprofessionals in this neighborhood. The girl plays in the uniform of the club, her costume being short-sleeve, loose-fitting blouse and a short skirt. She is a favorite with the fans and her work is generously applauded at all games."
