Episode Details

Sheryl welcomes the writer and Mt. Holyoke College lecturer Martha Ackmann to the program. The award winning author of “The Mercury 13: The True Story of Thirteen Women and the Dream of Space Flight,” has turned her sights on Toni Stone, the first woman to play professional baseball on a men's team. The result: “Curveball.” It's recently been published by the Lawrence Hill Books imprint of Chicago Review Press.
Toni Stone's story is set in the world of Jim Crow, sexism, and convention, all of which she threw over with no precedent and with no encouragement from her family or her world in St. Paul, Minnesota.
