“Spaceman” Bill Lee Owes Part of his ML Career to AAGPBL

Former major-league pitcher Bill Lee’s aunt, Annabelle Lee, had a big influence on his love of baseball.  She was a pitcher in the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League over 70 years ago and started playing baseball with Lee when she finished her 11-year career.  He still wears Annabelle’s old glove while he still occasionally plays in a senior baseball league.

Lee gained notoriety as a pitcher for the Boston Red Sox from 1969 to 1978, before finishing his career with the Montreal Expos in 1982.  He finished with a 119-90 record and 3.62 ERA in 416 career games.
