Editorial Reviews


I think [it's] the best book that's written on that idea of the first woman to play professional baseball. There's probably ten that have the same theme. But Barbara is a serious writer and did a very good job. -- Mike Wickham, "Five Baseball Books You Should Read," Old Time Family Baseball Blog

. . . a fun, energetic novel that is jam-packed with love and knowledge of baseball. It's also very thoughtful, delving into the ways in which Linda's task is similar to [Jackie] Robinson's . . . and others in which it's more difficult. . . ." -- Patrick T. Reardon, The Pump Don't Work

Gregorich . . . knows the game intimately, the slang and what players really say out on the field, as well as the camaraderie and the conflicts inevitable to teams of people who spend their lives together. And she brings it all vividly to life. -- Sara Paretsky, Chicago Tribune

About the Author

Barbara Gregorich is the author of She's on First, a well-received mainstream novel about the first female major leaguer. After writing a novel about the subject, Gregorich wondered whether there really were women who played baseball. Her curiosity led to four years of intensive research and the publication of the ground-breaking nonfiction book on the subject, Women at Play: The Story of Women in Baseball. This book won the SABR-MacMillan Baseball Research Award after its publication in 1993. 

In addition to writing adult fiction and nonfiction, Gregorich also writes children's fiction and nonfiction. She has published more than 150 texts and activity books. Among her many books for children are two humorous early readers, Waltur Buys a Pig in a Poke and Other Stories and Waltur Paints Himself into a Corner and Other Stories.  More information is available at
