The remaining players from the All American Girls professional Baseball League send their condolences to the family and friends of Barbara Sowers. We mourn her passing and remember the days we spent on the field living out our dreams of playing America's favorite pastime, baseball. We were all priviledged to have been re-united over the past 30+ years almost every year at Reunions around the country and have spent our golden years telling our stories and encouraging this generation to be involved in sports and live out heir dreams. It is our sincere hope you have many fond memories of those special days you spent with Barbara through the years and she will live on in your hearts as she does in ours.

I so much appreciate the confidence Barb showed in me by accepting what little I knew about actually being a caregiver, but knowing how much I cared and that I would give whatever it took to see that she had a meaningful life filled with as many great days as we could squeak in. I learned patience, peace and strenghth from her. If I ever decide to grow up, i want to be just like cousin Barb. Thank you, Barb for all that you were. I love you. Give my love to Shirley and know that Gidgette will have a great life with all of her furry cousins. You will be a part of me forever!
