Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ten year old Dani (affectionately called Dan by family and friends) lives and breathes baseball and there's no bigger fan of the 1961 Kansas City A's. So when the A's new owner, announces an essay contest to get batboys, Danid not only enters-she wins. However, her joy is short-lived when the contest officials enforce the FOR BOYS ONLY rule. Dandi Daley mackall's true-life story gives voice and testament to the spirit of young sports pioneers trying to break the barriers of gender.

Synopsis:

Ten-year-old Dandi (affectionately called "Dan" by family and friends) lives and breathes baseball. She may not be a fence buster but she can "hit 'em where they ain't" in the neighborhood pickup games. The boys know she's a contender. And there's no bigger fan of the 1961 Kansas City A's. So when Charlie Finley, the A's new owner, announces an essay contest to get batboys, there's no doubt Dandi will enter the contest. Dandi not only enters the contest--her essay wins! However, her joy is short-lived when the contest officials enforce the For Boys Only rule. Long before the boundary-breaking ruling of Title IX, young women across the country used grit and determination to prove that barriers of gender have no place on a level playing field. Dandi Daley Mackall's true-life story gives voice and testament to the spirit of these young sports pioneers.
