About the Author

Ann Myers Drysdale:
Ann was recently named by Time Magazine as one of the Top 10 Female Sports Pioneers of all time and is the only woman ever to play for an NBA team (the Indiana Pacers in 1979) and the only woman to sign a no-cut contract with the NBA. She was also the first woman ever to do color commentary of an NBA game, as well as the first woman to announce an NBA game on network television.

Ann was the first woman ever signed to a four-year athletic scholarship to UCLA, where she led the Women’s basketball team to their only National Championship in 1978. She was also a National Champion in Track & Field (both the pentathlon & high jump). To this day, she is the only four-time Bruin basketball All American, male or female. Ann was also the only woman ever asked to compete in ABC Sports’ Superstars, a popular made for TV competition pitting elite athletes like Mark Spitz, Joe Frazier, O.J. Simpson and Mark Gastineau against one another in a series of ten different events. After dominating the women’s competition three years in a row, Ann was invited to compete against the men.

After her athletic career Ann married Don Drysdale, legendary pitcher & announcer for the Los Angeles Dodgers, making them the first ever married couple enshrined in their respective sports’ Halls of Fame. Today Ann continues to break through barriers. She is the only female Vice President in the NBA (she is VP of the Phoenix Suns), and is also the General Manager of the WNBA’s Phoenix Mercury, which has won two WNBA Championships since she took over four years ago. The New York Times featured her prominently in a piece in August 2010 called “Pioneers Continue to Shepherd Women’s Basketball” (http://nyti.ms/dCm3Nz )

Ann has worked extensively as a broadcaster, as well. She covered the 2000, 2004, and 2008 Olympics for NBC and will be covering the 2012 Olympics for NBC. She also has an ongoing relationship with Fox, having just broadcast the Stanford vs. Cal Pac 10 men’s basketball finals last month.
