I posted this photo a few days ago and even sought help on Facebook and Twitter, asking if anyone knew who the third woman was.
I’ve now solved the mystery.
According to a newspaper report of players training in Havana, Cuba before the 1947 season, the players are Grand Rapids Chicks Philomena Gianfrancisco on the left, Twila Shively in the middle and Elsie Wingrove on the right.
Wingrove was from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. She had joined the All-American League the year before, played for the Fort Wayne Daisies and the Grand Rapids Chicks, and was now training for her second — and as it turned out — final year in the All-American League.
After the 1947 season, Wingrove married and decided to remain at home.
