Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A winning new picture book about the All American Girls Professional Baseball League--written with sass and style by all-star Shana Corey with illustrations from promising young rookie Rebecca Gibbon.

Did you know that one of America's favorite songs, "Take Me Out to the Ball Game," was written about a girl? And that in the 1940s girls all across America were crazy for our country's favorite game?

These little known facts inspired Shana Corey to imagine a story about how one determined girl made her way to the big leagues and found a sisterhood of players in pigtails. With the same exuberant spirit that fueled the formation of the All American Girls Professional Baseball League, joyful text and jubilant pictures celebrate these brave girls' love of the game and the league they called their own.
