Elizabeth Mahon

Biographical Information[edit]

Elizabeth Mahon began playing in the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League in 1944 and played nine seasons. Originally assigned to the Minneapolis Millerettes, she was spotted by Kenosha Comets manager Marty McManus, who traded for her. In 1945, McManus joined the South Bend Blue Sox and traded for her again. That season, with the Blue Sox, she hit in 13 consecutive games.

Mahon led the league in RBIs with 72 in 1946 and again in 1949 with 60. She was also an All-Star in the latter year. In 1950, she made only one error in the outfield.

Over the course of her career, Mahon hit .281 with 400 RBIs in 837 games.

After her playing days, Mahon earned a graduate degree in education and was a teacher for more than three decades. She was inducted in the South Carolina Athletic Hall of Fame in 2005.
