Description

Jean Faut was born in East Greenville, Pennsylvania, in 1925. As a teenager, she shagged flies and pitched batting practice for a men's semipro team, and was spotted by an AAGPBL scout and recruited into the league. She played from 1946 through 1953 for the South Bend Blue Sox. She was initially signed as a third baseman, but had such a good arm that she was converted to a pitcher, and became one of the most dominant pitchers in the league. She threw several no-hitters and two perfect games, and helped her team to win two championships. She was married and had a son while she was in the league, and when he was old enough, he came with her on road trips
