1968 Bertha and granddaughters at Bertha Tickey Night ceremony
Bridgeport Post

This is a photo of pitcher Bertha Tickey and her two granddaughters on the night of her last regular season game with the Brakettes in 1968. More than 4,000 fans turned out for the “Bertha Tickey Night” ceremony that preceded the game, which, fittingly, was against her former team, the Orange Lionettes (the Brakettes won, 3-1).
