Lavonne "Pepper" Paire-Davis was one badass woman. Not only did she inspire the movie A League of Their Own AND Geena Davis's role (which almost went to Demi Moore), she was a a star of the All American Girls Professional Baseball League in the 1940s.

In 1943, the league was created because everyone was afraid that WWII would disrupt the MLB, and they wanted something to fall back on. Pepper joined in 1944 and played for TEN SEASONS.
