When Women Played Hardball based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
Johnson gives a great account of the 1950 championship playoff series between the Rockford Peaches and the Ft. Wayne Daisies. As opposed to other books written about the All American Girls Professional Baseball League, Johnson gives the reader a much more personal view of what actually happened, especially during this specific playoff series. As a long time fan of the women's ball, Johnson put more into this book than just facts; she really put her heart into every word written. As well as covering the 1950 championship playoff series, Johnson gives a very detailed and factual history of the league itself, which is helpful to readers who have little knowledge of the topic. While the book is great for people new to learning about women's baseball, it is also a great read for people who want a different view of the league.
Susan Johnson leaves nothing out in her account of the 1950 playoffs series between the Rockford Peaches and Ft. Wayne Daisies. Well written with the lively enthusiam that could only be brought to the pages by an actual fan of the teams written about, Johnson's book not only gives a solid history of the entire league, but also gives a highly detailed account of particular players and games during one season. A must have book for AAGPBL enthusiasts.
