How Major League Baseball's First Female Owner Came To Lead The Cardinals

The majority women ownership group at the helm of St. Louis' new professional soccer team is continuing a line of female sports ownership in the region that extends to the early 1900s.

While many St. Louisans recall that the National Football League's Rams were owned by Georgia Frontiere for much of the team's time in the Midwest, they might not know the Cardinals also had a female owner.

And she just so happened to be the first female owner in Major League Baseball history.

Author Joan M. Thomas wrote "Baseball's First Lady: Helene Hathaway Robison Britton and the St. Louis Cardinals." Thomas spoke with St. Louis Public Radio's Wayne Pratt and told him she made the discovery about Britton while working on another book.
