Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Dr. Judy Rowen
This is a chronological history of the All American Girls Professional Baseball League, the organization immortalized in the film, A League of Their Own. Wonderful sepia-toned photographs bring the league to life. Unfortunately, the text does not do as well as the illustrations. By choosing a strictly chronological structure, the author frequently loses the spirit by becoming mired in details. A timeline would have been helpful, to help keep track of the teams added and removed from the league's roster as well as the changes in the game itself-the ball was made smaller and smaller throughout the league's lifetime. The book is most likely to appeal to girls with athletic interests, who will still find much to enjoy within its pages. The spunk of the women who seized the chance to play professionally is evident.
School Library Journal
Gr 5-9-This title takes a personal look at the league and its players. The author's acknowledgements indicate that much of the information was gathered through interviews and correspondence with the players and others associated with the AAGPBL. Unfortunately, no direct documentation is provided, even though quotes are used liberally. Many of the candid black-and-white photographs that are peppered throughout were also obtained from those involved with the league. Sue Macy's A Whole New Ball Game (Holt, 1993) is still the best book on the subject, though its reading level is more advanced. Trudy Hanmer's All-American Girls Professional Baseball League (New Discovery, 1994) is comparable to Galt's title in format and reading level, but is more of an overall history of women in baseball. Up to the Plate provides an intimate look at the AAGPBL and its participants and will serve well as a supplement to Macy's in-depth history.-Tom S. Hurlburt, La Crosse Public Library, WI
