Typewritten letter from New York Bloomer Girls manager Margaret Mabel to the manager of an opposing team, seeking a game for the 1927 season.  Addressed to "Dear Manager," the letter is likely a form letter, expressing the desire to play against male teams, explaining that a male battery is used in most of their games, but that the women on the team are competitive, with "Big League" style drills, and touting the skills of third baseman Nina McCutton, and 16-year-old second baseman Ethel Condon.  The letter is in EX condition with some light staining at the top edge, and a few stray marks on the reverse.
