Podcast Description: Bloomer Girls

Genre: Historical-Fiction, Audio Drama

Bloomer Girls is a scripted mini-series based loosely on the untold story of the first women of baseball and shines a light on eight extraordinary female athletes who stormed baseball fields across the country, challenging men’s teams to duel on the diamond. Unbeknownst to the world, women played baseball with men. Hardball… the real thing. At the turn of the 20th century, when headlines about America’s pastime were dominated by names like Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, and others you’ve heard before, there was also an equally elite group of women who played with the boys and more than held their own. The Bloomer Girls podcast series is about giving them their rightful spot in history.

Voice Talent Needed for the Following Characters:

Maud Nelson

1. Maud Nelson

Age: 50's
Gender: Female
Accent: Mid-Western (Chicago/Ohio/Pennsylvania)


Maud Nelson was a world renowned pitcher for numerous Bloomer Girl baseball teams at the turn of the 20th century. She stood about five foot, three inches tall, with a serious demeanor and a formidable pitching arsenal. Maud demonstrated her talent in a pure and modest manner throughout her baseball career which spanned across four decades, from the early Bloomer Leagues and well into the glory days of women’s professional baseball. Most notably, she pitched, played third base, scouted, owned or managed bloomer teams for forty years.

Maud’s character needs to sound like… tough, no-nonsense, and sure of herself. Captain of the Team Confidence. She was quite simply a champion. But she’s not boastful. The best kind of champion!

Albert Goodwill (A.G.) Spalding

2. Albert Goodwill (A.G.) Spalding

Age: 50's
Gender: Male
Accent: Mid-Western (Illinois) … but remember, you’re from the 1920’s!
Time Period: Early 1900's


Spalding was an American pitcher, manager, and executive in the early years of professional baseball, and the co-founder of A.G. Spalding sporting goods company. He was born and raised in Byron, Illinois. He played major league baseball between 1871 and 1878, managed for numerous years and created his infamous baseball guides, which was the first set of official baseball rules for the sport.

Spalding’s character needs to sound like… pompous, misogynistic with a bloated ego and a men’s club attitude.

Walter Perry Johnson

3. Walter Perry Johnson

Age: Mid to late 40’s
Gender: Male
Accent: Mid-Western (Cleveland & Washington D.C.)
Time Period: Early 1900's


Nicknamed "The Big Train” for his prolific 21-year pitching career for the Washington Senators, Walter also served as manager of the Senators and for the Cleveland Indians. Often thought of as one of the greatest pitchers in baseball history, Walter established several pitching records, some of which remain unbroken nine decades after he retired from baseball and was elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame as one of its "first five" inaugural members. His gentle nature was legendary, and to this day he is held up as an example of good sportsmanship, while his name has become synonymous with friendly competition.

Walter’s character needs to sound like… he spent his childhood in Kansas so maybe he has a slight country drawl in his voice, with a charm and kindness in which he was known for. And a damn good baseball player!

Public Service Announcement Narrator

4. Public Service Announcement Narrator

Age: 30-50
Gender: Female
Accent: Mid-Alantic
Time Period: Early to mid 1900’s
Audio Example: Flapper 1920s - Reel 1


“PSA Lady” needs to sound like… See audio example above. It’s exactly what we are looking for. In addition: Mid-Atlantic, TransAtlantic, proper, buttoned up, professional, proper, enunciates well, posh, golden age of Hollywood.
