An original player in the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League (AAGPBL), the inspiration for the film “A League of Their Own,” provided a truly heartwarming moment at the 2022 Tribeca Festival.

Maybelle Blair, a pitcher for the AAGPBL’s Peoria Redwings, came out as a lesbian for “basically the first time” during a panel discussion at the film festival.

Blair, who is 95 years old, told the crowd at New York City’s SVA Theatre that she’d known she liked women since high school.
