New Line of AAGPBL Shirts Released by Homage

In celebration of Women’s History Month, Ohio-based vintage-inspired apparel company Homage has just released a brand new line of t-shirts “that pay homage” to the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League.

The AAGPBL, arguably the most famous professional women’s baseball league thanks in part to the 1992 film A League of Their Own, got underway in 1943 (at the time using “Softball” in its name in place of Baseball) and lasted until the end of the 1954 season. Over 600 women participated during the league’s dozen seasons.

The new collection from our friends at Homage features fifteen unique designs each dedicated to an AAGPBL team, such as the Rockford Peaches, Racine Belles, and Fort Wayne Daisies.

“The AAGPBL blazed a trail in women’s sports and rocked the baseball diamond between 1945 and 1954,” read a release from Homage. “Founded during a world war and a time of immense social change, the AAGPBL was the foremother of professional women’s sports leagues in the United States.”

The new collection features the designs of fifteen different AAGPBL teams

Designs vary but where this collection shines are those in which a retro-themed in-action pose of a baseball player is shown wearing the famous AAGPBL style uniform, skirt and all. The team name is incorporated in an era-appropriate style along with either the club initials or the city and state of where the team called home.
