Reviews

"Lang tells the tale in a direct and sympathetic manner, without maudlin sentimentality or anger, instead stressing Kathryn's love of baseball and her strength of character." Kirkus Reviews
"Readers will admire [Kathryn's] grit and determinationparticularly when she demands that her mother cut off her long braids so she can try out for Little League as 'a boy.'" Publishers Weekly
"In this picture book biography, Lang doesnt leave baseball lovers stranded on base as game-related terminology is sprinkled throughout. Puglesis digital artwork adds depth to the text, showing strong emotions on the characters faces and containing fun hidden gems, especially for Yankees fans (notice the magazines and posters). The text works nicely with the illustrations and would make for a good one-on-one read." School Library Journal​
