In Honor of Annabelle Lee

by on January 28, 2010

Sue Macy’s submission to Baseballisms.com reprinted with permission.  Note – Sue Macy mentioned Annabelle Lee during the recording of our Cover the Bases podcast discussing her book A Whole New Ball Game: The Story of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League.  When I watched the documentary Spaceman: A Baseball Odyssey on the MLB Network, and saw Annabelle prominently featured discussing her nephew Bill, I reached out to Sue.  Here is her response:

“Annabelle died in the summer of 2008, which just happened to be when I got a new cat. I named her Annabelle Lee. She’s not a lefty as far as I can tell, but she definitely has Annabelle’s spunk.”

Thanks Sue!  A great tale from a true baseball fan …
