Description
 
Katie Casey walked, talked, and even dreamed baseball. She was never allowed to play on the Fairfield High team, which was for boys only. But America was at war, and more and more of the country’s boys -- including the professional baseball players -- were going off to fight. Even President Roosevelt was worried. Finally, Phillip Wrigley, the owner of the Chicago Cubs, sent out 30 scouts to find girls to play for the first and only girls professional baseball league. All over the country, girls were playing ball. And they were playing just as good as the boys. Katie passed the tryout and got signed up with the other girls. The All-American Girls Professional Baseball League was on its way! Full-color illustrations.
