Mamie loved the game of baseball. She was also inspired by the great Jackie Robinson, and she was determined to become a profession baseball pitcher. But there was no place for a black woman in a sport dominated by white men. That didn't stop Mamie, though! She began by insisting on trying out for the all-male, all-white Police Athletic League team. Read the inspiring, courage-filled biography of Mamie Johnson, one of only three women who ever played in the Negro Leagues. Recommended for ages 10 and up.
