The Night They Lit Up Wrigley at The Church

  • The Church presented by Upstate Production Services Inc (map)

In February 1987, Connie I. Lane, a young theater professional from St. Louis and member of Redbird Nation since an early age, had the opportunity to interview Rita Meyer Moellering for research on her playing days in the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League (AAGPBL). Moellering played shortstop and pitcher for the Peoria Redwings 1946-1949 where she earned the nickname “Slats” because her slick defense and hard-throwing arm reminded people of the St. Louis Cardinals’ shortstop, Marty “Slats” Marion. Based on her research, Lane wrote a one-woman drama based on facts.
