2017 marks the 30th anniversary of the publication of She’s on First, a novel that’s been called the best book written on the idea of the first woman to play professional baseball . . . a story that’s been described as a fun, energetic novel jam-packed with love and knowledge of baseball.
Full of riveting baseball action and captivating characters, this is the story of Linda Sunshine, first female major leaguer, shortstop for the never-in-first-place Chicago Eagles. It's also the story of Big Al Mowerinski, the owner who hired her for ulterior motives; Neal Vanderlin, the reporter who supports her; and the various teammates who want her on (or off) the Eagles.
Published to stellar reviews in hardback in 1987 and paperback in 1988, brimming with humor and tough sentiment, She's on First is a great read with great baseball action — as commanding as a fastball, as surprising as a curve, and as satisfying as a home run. She’s on First has long been a part of baseball literature — don't miss it!
