    A fun read!

    Visited the Sluggers' Museum in Louisville and bought the book for a birthday gift for a family member who loves baseball the way I do. I grew up just like the author...a 'tomboy' playing and loving baseball (thanks to my Dad!). I thought I knew so much about baseball and players and I learned so much more! It was a really fun read! I had to purchase a copy of my own!
