Virginia Carver was a pitcher and outfielder who played in the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League. She was born in New Brighton, Pennsylvania.[1]

Carver entered the league in 1953 with the South Bend Blue Sox, and later was a member of the pennant-winning Fort Wayne Daisies in its 1954 season.[1][2]

In 17 pitching appearances, Carver posted a 5-7 record with an 8.78 ERA in 80.0 innings of work. As a batter, she hit an average of .173 (13-for-75) in 32 games, including seven RBI, seven runs scored, and one stolen base.[3]

The AAGPBL folded in 1954, but there is a permanent display at the Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum at Cooperstown, New York since November 5, 1988, that honors the entire league rather than any individual figure.[4]
