America's favorite past time and a heroine we can cheer for! One who isn't getting millions to play(far from it!) or switch teams as fast as you can say "free agent!" It's 1920's and Diamond Ruby is a woman way ahead of her time as she pitches her way into this reader's heart. Overcoming everything author Joe Wallace can throw at her she is always one step ahead! Go Ruby!!! Loved this memorable summer novel!
