Bill Lee

In Honor of Annabelle Lee

Sue Macy’s submission to 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 …


Chris vs. The Spaceman

by on March 29, 2008

In this Baseballism, we get to hear Chris’s pitch by pitch account of his at bat versus Bill Lee in the Roy Hobbs Masters Baseball Tourney. Seems that Cameron had replaced “hit the ball” with “got a hit” as he remembered the story… no big deal, because it’s still great to picture a couple of years ago, Bill Lee coming in from shortstop to buzz a high heater at the first batter he faces.
