(From the publisher):
The story goes...
Grandmama could hit the ball a mile,
catch anything that was thrown,
and do everything else --
just like Josh Gibson.
But unfortunately, no matter how well a girl growing up in the 1940s played the game of baseball, she would have faced tremendous challenges. These challenges are not unlike those met by the legendary Josh Gibson, arguably the best Negro-League player to never make it into the majors.
