Louise “Lou” Arnold

Professional Baseball Player. A pitcher, she spent four seasons with the South Bend Blue Sox of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League (AAGPBL). Raised in Pawtuckett, Rhode Island, she was a stand-out athlete in high school and was signed by the AAGPBL in 1948 at the point when the league was switching to overhand pitching. Lou played her entire career with the Blue Sox, pitching in 1948 and 1949 before sitting out the 1950 campaign; returning in 1951 she had her best season, winning 10 games while losing only 2 and recording a no-hitter, in the process helping her team to its second straight league crown. Retiring after the 1952 season, Lou relocated permanently to South Bend where she worked for 30 years at a Bendix Corporation factory. In later years she was active in organizing player reunions and appearing at autograph shows. Lou was part of the 1988 mass induction of the AAGPBL and its players by the Baseball Hall of Fame and was named to the South Bend Baseball Hall of Fame in 2005. Her league’s story was told in the 1992 feature “A League of Their Own”. (bio by: Bob Hufford)
