Players in Pigtails
Inspired by the hit movie A 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.
