Belles of the Ballpark: Celebrating the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League recaptures the AAGPBL’s 12 amazing seasons. From its inspiring beginnings during World War II, thanks to the innovation of Chicago Cubs owner P.K. Wrigley, the “Girls League” gave Midwestern towns a league of their own. Share classic memories from former players, coaches, fans, major leaguer Casey Candaele (son of a Girls League batting champion) and his brother Kelly, who wrote the story that became the movie A League of Their Own. A member of the all-girls Wisconsin baseball youth league, supported by the AAGPBL, tells about her opportunity decades before Little League allowed females on the field. Discover how two women rescued the league’s history from near obscurity in the 1980s. If you liked the movie, you’ll love this epic true story. In addition to an inside look at the league and its players, Belles of the Ballpark also features - -Interviews with an all-star cast of former players -The story of the more than 20 former major leaguers who were involved with the league -Reproductions of AAGPBL baseball cards, now collectors' items, and the story behind their creation -More than 50 photographs, plus a league history timeline
