An All-American in 1938, Lois Pitts Baccus was one of most versatile players in Arizona women’s softball history. A superb pitcher, she also excelled as an outfielder and at third base. She played in two national tournaments in Chicago, in 1937 and 1938, and in six Regional tournaments. One of the game’s most dangerous hitters, she won the batting championship of a tournament in New York’s Madison Square Garden with a .460 average in 1938. She won the batting title in the 1940 regional tournament in Phoenix, hitting .430. Following a sparkling early career with Glendale teams, she became a star for the Woodsmen of the World Team in Phoenix, and climaxed her career as an outstanding performer for the nationally famous PBSW Ramblers of Phoenix.
