Here’s a photo of pitcher Nina “Tiger” Korgan with some of her Jax Maids teammates from a 1942 article in the Times-Picayune Sunday magazine. Korgan was new to the New Orleans team that year, having spent the 1941 season with the Tulsa, Oklahoma-based Higgins Midgets. Her pitching, combined with the hitting talents of the Savona sisters, made the Jax nearly unstoppable during the 1940s and netted them five national titles.
