Slammers vs Chicago Bandits Exhibition
Special Tribute to Women's baseball/softball
Ginger Gascon - Alice Kolski
Special Tribute to Women's baseball/softball pioneer Alice Kolski Lundgren Who Threw Out Ceremonial First Pitch At Slammer's 2009 DH with the Chicago Bandits. (Game summaries and more info down the page 
"Ginger Gascon once made $125 per week playing for the Chicago Colleens of the All-American Girls' Professional Baseball League. In her first season, her salary was $55, still more than her $40-per-week day job working in a factory."
.
 
11/14/20 - 3/25/11 Age 88
  The Slammers extend condolences to the family of Alice Kolski Lundgren. She was born November 14, 1922 in Chicago, and was the daughter of Theodore and Cecelia Kolski. Alice was a professional player in the National Girls Baseball League and was voted League MVP in 1944. Alice threw out the ceremonial first pitch at a Slammer vs Chicago Bandit exhibition double-header in 2009 where she was among several Woman's Baseball pioneers being honored. 
Alice was a pitcher/catcher and played for the NL Queens 43' - 55'.
Biography being assembled by William E McMahon, PHD Univ of Akron

After a hard fought double header loss to the Chicago Bandits the Slammers might borrow a phrase from pro football coach Dennis Green :"The Bandits are who we thought they were.....the top pro team in the country."
..
Game 1
..
Facing Kristina Thorson in her trade mark black-eye make-up the Slammers managed only 1 hit by Dani Miller in this agreed upon 5 inning game. Losing 4 -0, the only runs scored off  Slammers pitcher Casey Clutch-Creakbaum were scored on a long,  grand slam off the bat of Bandit's cleanup hitter Samantha Findlay. A Slammer defensive highlite came in the very first inning when Abby Gross gunned down the Bandit's Kristie Fox at 2nd base. Final score: Bandits 4 Slammers 0
..
Game 2
..
Trailing 1-0 going into the 3rd inning the Slammers mustered their only real threat off Bandit starter Eileen Canney when after two out both Whitney Davis and Sarah Oppelt singled. However, both were stranded and the Bandits added 2 runs in the bottom of the 3rd to make the score 3-0. This score would stand until the bottom of the 6th when the Bandits scored 4 runs. 3 of the 4 runs came on a Laura Harms home run. Final score at the end of seven innings: Bandits 7 Slammers 0.
..
Slammer pitcher Torie Bunzell was on the mound in this 7 inning night cap and kept the Slammers in the game until the 6th inning when the  bottom of the Bandit line-up showed why this team is so deep.
..
The defensive highlite of this game again came from behind the plate when Brittney Fisher retrieved a wild pitch and nailed the Bandit's Stacy May as she tried to dive back to 3rd base. Whitney Davis collected 2 of the Slammers 3 hits. Slammer catchers threw out 3 Bandit runners in this double header.
                                                      .. 
Salute To Women's Baseball Pioneers
....
During the break between games honors were paid to members of the All American Girls Professional Baseball League of the 1940's who were in attendance. It was an honor to be with the ladies on the field and watch them throw out the ceremonial first pitch of the second game. (photos below)
