About This Book

With many men serving in the military during World War II, Phillip Wrigley follows his daring plan to recruit women to play ball, despite public ridicule. On opening day, Katie Casey, a member of the Kenosha Comets, shows fans and the country that women have just as much talent as men when it comes to sports.

Inspired by the hit movieA League of Their Own, this is a delightful tribute to the All- American Girls Professional Baseball League, created during World War II. The story focuses in particular on Katie Casey, who preferred "sliding to sewing" and "batting to baking" and is mentioned as a "baseball-mad" girl in the song TAKE ME OUT TO THE BALL GAME! Determined Katie makes it all the way to the big leagues and finds a sisterhood of friends and players. This is a girl-power story like no other.
