In 1949, at age fifteen, Sue Kidd became a member of the Springfield Sallies, a team in the professional All-American Girls Baseball League. She had considerable pitching success with three different teams in a career that lasted approximately five years. Her pitching was instrumental in league championships in both 1951 and 1952. Off-season activities included her own traveling All-Star team, which, according to this flyer, played an all-male Heber Springs (Cleburne County) team in 1949.
