Betty Trezza




Age: 81


Summary: professional baseball player who at 17 ditched her job as a Garment District embroiderer to play women's professional baseball and later smacked a memorable championship-winning hit, who did not inspire the character played by Madonna in the 1992 film A League of Their Own, but may have been part of the inspiration for the Betty Spaghetti character played by Tracy Reiner.
