In 1943, with the men off to war and the existence of baseball threatened, the All American Girls’ Professional Baseball League was created.  This is a story on this event.  Scouts scoured the countryside to find the best women softball players and brought them to Chicago to create the first and only professional women’s baseball league.  These pioneering women triumphed over the hardships of training, the ridicule and initial rejection by baseball fans and went on to assure themselves a place on sports history and the Baseball Hall of Fame. A novelisation of the film starring Tom Hanks, Geena Davis and Madonna.
