  • General Info
General Information
Description
Alva Jo Fischer [Stevens] was a pitcher and shortstop who played from 1945 through 1949 in the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League. Listed at 5 ft 9 in, 135 lb., she batted and threw right-handed. Fischer was born in San Antonio, Texas, and played for the all-state team at first base in 1938. She entered the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League in 1945 with the Rockford Peaches, playing for them one year before joining the Muskegon Lassies for the rest of her five-year career. Nicknamed ?Tex? by her teammates, Fischer was used primarily as a pitcher, but later became a highly competent shortstop as well. In her rookie season, Fischer posted a 4?7 record with a 3.77 earned run average and 98 innings of work in 16 pitching appearances. The Peaches, managed by Bill Allington, won the regular season title with a 67?43 mark. They increased their dominance during the postseason, when defeated the Grand Rapids Chicks in the best-of-five first round, three to one games, and claimed the championship by winning the Fort Wayne Daisies in the best-of-seven series, four to one games. In the final series, Fischer hurled three shutout innings of relief.
