June 29, 2013 "Most people who have learned about the league didn't know that each city where there was a team there was also a future league for upcoming players. I was 9 when I first walked toward a park, in a new neighborhood where I heard the crack of a bat and the smack of a baseball hitting the center of a baseball glove. From that day forward I was in love with the idea of being another Doris Sams. Many of my pals on the Future Daisies League in Fort Wayne, IN., thought I looked like Doris. When she played games in Fort Wayne, she was always friendly and a talented player. She was one of my many mentors. What a lucky girl I was to have been part of the league as a wanta-be player. It was not to be for me, but it was the most wonderful time of my life, now at 74. I know you, her family, miss her and so do all of us who ever met her express her talents. My thoughts are with you always." - Carol Owens (Healdsburg, CA)

I was quite young but we have done some research and can't find much on the extended family, what an amazing woman! My children and my nieces are spectacular at baseball and softball maybe that's the side it comes from ! My father is curious to know doris parents name and extended family. My prayers go out to our extended family and send love and comfort your way . May god keep u and welcome Doris into heaven with his loving arms ." - Nicole Youngman ( Sams ) maiden (Hanover, PA)
