Most people have seen the film “A League of Their Own” which tells the story of the All American Girls Professional Baseball League. Did you know that the film actually features a Lincoln Park native who played in the league? Her name is Mary Moore and her story is incredible.

In 2001, Moore was among the inaugural class of inductees into the Lincoln Park Sports Hall of Fame. The 86 year old lives in White Lake and stays active with golf and bowling.

The AAGPBL was formed in 1943 during World War II when most able-bodied athletes were serving in the armed forces. Born of an idea by Philip K. Wrigley, owner of the Chicago Cubs, the league and its players served to lift the morale of the country during war time by continuing the nation’s favorite pastime.

The league’s franchises were all based in the Midwest, in cities from Minneapolis to Battle Creek. After 12 seasons, the AAGPBL ended in 1954.

“A League of Their Own”, starred Geena Davis, Tom Hanks, Madonna and Rosie O’Donnell, and you can see Mary in the film.

In the second half of the podcast, I am always joined by Cyndy Schalter from Turning Point Macomb.
This week we tackle the topic of tipping. A cruel restaurant guide posted a couple of years ago is making the rounds again and it has people pretty fired up.

This 'insulting' tipping hack has the internet up in arms - all over again

In the restaurant world, is there anything worse than a bad tipper? Try a bad tipper who dangles a few measly dollars in front of servers as an incentive for good service. At least, that's what the internet has collectively agreed.

Cyndy and I also discuss bed wetting. What happens if your child has been potty trained for a long time, but all of a sudden they start having accidents? There is a reason and Cyndy explains what those reasons could be.
