Dummerth got into the game during her high school years where she earned a reputation for being a good catcher.[citation needed] Thereafter, when she was 20 she started playing for the Minneapolis Millerettes[2][3] and then, in the same year, for the Racine Belles.[1] She both threw and batted right-handed.[1] After playing just 16 games, she left the League and joined the United States Navy. After leaving the navy she married Robert A. Dummerth and had eight children.[4]

In 1989 Dummerth was honored by the St. Louis Cardinals.[5]

Dummerth died on October 8, 2017.[4]
