When Women Played Hardball by Susan E. Johnson
Hosted by Ohio Municipal Clerks Association (OMCA)
Facilitated by: Tami Kelly, MMC
The years between 1943 and 1954 marked the magical era of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League--which proved beyond doubt that women can play hardball. With skill and style, more than 500 women took to the baseball diamonds of the Midwest, dazzling fans and becoming a visible and supported part of our national pastime.
Filled with colorful stories and anecdotes by the women who played in that spectacular series, When Women Played Hardball offers an entertaining look at the culture the league created--and the society it reflected. This is a story about memories, about dreams fulfilled and dreams denied.
This Dialogue will be held virtually via Zoom. Participants must have audio and video capability. Cameras will be required during the dialogue and participants must be able to hear and speak to one another.
