Description

Effa always loved baseball. As a young woman, she would go to Yankee Stadium just to see Babe Ruths mighty swing. But she never dreamed she would someday own a baseball team. Or be the firstand onlywoman ever inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame.

From her childhood in Philadelphia to her groundbreaking role as business manager and owner of the Newark Eagles, Effa Manley always fought for what was right. And she always swung for the fences.

From author Audrey Vernick and illustrator Don Tate comes the remarkable story of an all-star of a woman.
