The Springfield Sallies joined the AAGPBL in 1948, representing Springfield, IL. The club was the worst in the league, going 41-84, 35 and a half games behind the Racine Belles in the western division. They were managed by Carson Bigbee

The club had no All-Stars; the only player to have a very good year was second basewoman Evie Wawryshyn, who hit .262/~.313/.290 and tied for sixth in average. She also was among the top 10 in total bases (126), steals (66) and hits (114).

In 1949 the Sallies joined the Chicago Colleens as touring player development teams, then were gone for good by 1951.
