will be able to help you with the proper selection.

for our members, so please mention your purchase is for
the WWII Girls Baseball Living History League to get the
special price package.
- Baseball Glove: Select one that was available before
1946. The optimal glove is the US Military Leather
Baseball Glove used by soldiers during WW2. Other possible
suggestions are the 1930 Dazzy Vance Glove or
1929 Babe Ruth, The 1919 Glove is also acceptable
even though a much earlier glove, but certainly would
have been available in 1943. Many vintage gloves
can simply be purchased from Ebay sellers at a
reasonable price. K&P Weaver also sells new reproduction
gloves which are approve for use in our league also.

- The league has not yet been able to identify a
supplier for affordable reproduction 1943 baseball cleated baseball
shoes. Below are two photos showing original shoes on
display at the Rockford Midway Village Museum's Rockford
Peaches Exhibit. It is possible to get the genuine
period shoes if you are a lucky bidder with E-Bay; so
keep an eye out.
If you plan to wear modern baseball cleats; please make
sure they are plain and black with a classic styling; as
close as possible to the above original shoes. We just
ask that you do your best with the shoes. Try to
avoid modern markings that call attention to your shoes
that they are not of the 1940s.
If you plan to just wear
regular athletic shoes, particularly off the field at
events where cleated shoes may not be appropriate, the following shoes have
been identified as passable shoes. Reebok's Princess
Classic sport shoe, available from many stores and on
line suppliers. Use a black cloth tape to then
blacken out the brand logos. Again, these shoes are one
possibility, there may be other brands and styles that
may also be passable. Just do your best to pick
shoes that look as much as possible as the originals

suppliers out there, some of which are listed on the
Vintage Base Ball Association's website vendor page,

the league is
