About this item

Williams, associate professor at Marshall University, West Virginia, and president of the International Women's Baseball Center, affectionately tells the history of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League (AAGPBL). Made famous from the movie, A League of Their Own, the AAGPBL offered a chance to be a paid professional athlete, an unheard of opportunity for women at the time. The author discusses topics such as independence, travel, patriotism, among others. Of special note is the chapter highlighting the women's careers after the AAGPBL, and how many of them became inspirations to the next generation of girl and women athletes. Numerous photographs of the players, both from the league days and further on in their lives are included. An appendix lists current organizations that promote girls' and women's baseball in the US and Canada. Annotation ©2017 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
