The Incredible Women of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League

"In 1941, the world was at war, and with American men fighting overseas, the much needed pastime of professional baseball was in danger of extinction — until women stepped up to the plate." In this heartwarming illustrated history, the League's story is told by the ones who know it best: the players. Author Anika Orrock collects a variety of funny, charming, wince-worthy, and powerful vignettes told by the players themselves about their time playing the American pastime.

This book chronicles the history of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League and the stories of the first women to play professional baseball. Written in an approachable manner and beautifully illustrated, The Incredible Women of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League is a one-of-a-kind story, perfect for fans of Women in Science: 50 Fearless Pioneers Who Changed the World, Strong is the New Pretty, and Rad American Women A-Z.
