|Career highlights and awards|
Elizabeth "Betty" Emry (January 20, 1923 – April 18, 1995) was an infielder and pitcher who played in the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League. Listed at 5 ft 4 in (1.63 m), 130 lb, she batted and threw right-handed.
A member of a championship team, Emry filled in at infield and pitched during her two-year stint in the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League.
She started her career at shortstop, but was converted to a pitcher because of her strong throwing arm. She then posted a 7–4 record and a 2.15 earned run average in 15 games for the 1946 Belles champion team, even though she was still hampered by a knee injury. She also allowed three unearned runs in four innings of a postseason game, but did not have a decision.
After baseball, Emry went to work at Briggs Aircraft plant close to end of World War II.
She is part of Women in Baseball, a permanent display based at the Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, New York, which was unveiled in 1988 to honor the entire All-American Girls Professional Baseball League.
