Marilyn Field describes herself as a tomboy. For this reason, when she was a child, she loved to play anything that was sports-related. Since she was raised before girls had the opportunity to play team sports, she never received the training she needed to fully learn them.

After her college softball coach told her she was a cross-handed batter, Field realized she wanted to make a difference for women and girls in sports. So she changed her major to recreation. After graduation, she found herself employed as the recreation supervisor for the city of Menlo Park. She later came to Lodi and was employed by the city's Parks and Recreation Department, where she was instrumental in building athletic programs for women and girls. For her contributions in athletics, Field, 74, was chosen as an inductee for the Lodi Community Hall of Fame.
