Earlene "Beans" Risinger was born in Hess, Oklahoma, in 1927.

She saw a newspaper article about the All American Girls Professional Baseball League, and joined the Grand Rapids Chicks in 1948. She went with the League to Spring Training in Cuba in 1948, and then on a postseason trip to Central America.
