    Here is an old post of mine in Babe Ruth Thread.

    I believe that Ford Frick banned women from playing in the Major Leagues, but I could be incorrect.

    I dont see why women would have been banned because of 1 women in 1 exhibition game.
    Is there any women in the minor leagues?

    I do not believe there are any formal rules banning females from the major leagues. I could be wrong, though.
