If we are lucky enough to have a childhood legend, then I am one lucky grownup. She was tough and funny and wickedly talented. I don’t even know all the talents she possessed, but every time I turned around she was doing something new. The news of her passing broke my heart. She was like a second mom to me. Hugs to you all!

I was lucky enough to catch Shirley on “the old ladies” team for a few years. I only received 1 broken finger and many bruised palms. She was truly a phenom. I hope she’s pitching on “A League of Our Own” and I can catch a few more in the future. RIP.

I was so sorry to hear of the passing of Shiley and my prayers are with her family. I was very fortunate to have been a teammate of Shirley's on the "older ladies" softball team. She was one fantastic pitcher and I had the privilege of catching her at times. Playing shortstop behind her I got to see the reactions of the batters. She blew them away which resulted in many wins. Very wonderful memories. I lost touch with her over the years but I've always cherished those memories.
