Girl's Softball Comment


I really enjoyed John's posting from his book on Girl's softball in Greenfield Park as it reminded me of stories I have heard of my own mom. Even though we ended up in the Park she never played ball in Greenfield Park. She played in the Montreal Leagues and one year (193? ) her team St Matts won the city Championship.

I remember her telling me one of the Girls on her team went on to either run in the Olympics or win a metal in the Olympics( 1932 or 36). Her name was Myrtle Cooke who later married and her son is Don McGowan of CFCF Montreal fame. I am sure John, like myself cannot watch " A League of Our Own" without thinking of his mom.It's kinda neat. Thanks John.

Thanks Ralph
