520    "This fully illustrated history tells the story of women's
       first "league of their own," the All-American Girl's 
       Professional Baseball League (1943-1954), as told through 
       the engaging voices of the people who knew it best: the 
       players! Author Anika Orrock has collected a range of 
       funny, charming, wince-worthy and heart-warming vignettes 
       as told by the players themselves from their various 
       experiences playing in the AAGBPL, from the very first 
       tryouts to barnstorming around the country and sliding 
       into home base in League-mandated skirts and lipstick. 
       Beginning with a brief history of the founding of the 
       league, the players' stories are woven together with press
       coverage of the league, player statistics, and historical 
       beats to form a single narrative of their experiences, 
       struggles, and impressions of a time when being a woman in
       a professional sports league was revolutionary. With an 
       introduction by New York Yankees assistant general manager
       Jean Afterman, THE INCREDIBLE WOMEN OF THE AAGBPL is an 
       inspirational story for anyone looking to carve out their 
       own place in the world"--|cProvided by publisher.
