The Baseball Culture of Brooklyn's Women
Gender attitudes in the interior world of professional baseball are more sharply focused than in any other area of life, but still, baseball did mirror a broad American male cultural norm as well. Baseball-bred contempt for women took many forms, none more virulent than that found in the collectively arrogant Dodger attitude toward “Baseball Annies.” It was very much in evidence in both the Dodger organization's and the press's treatment of female Dodger fans, women who ran the gamut from working stiff Hilda Chester to Pulitzer Prize poet Marianne Moore.
