Description: BOOK: “She Loved Baseball: The Effa Manley Story”  by: Audrey Vernick
Synopsis ----  Effa always loved baseball. As a young woman, she would go to Yankee                                                   Stadium just to see Babe Ruth’s mighty swing. But she never dreamed she would someday own a baseball team. Or be the first – and only --woman ever inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. From her childhood in Philadelphia to her groundbreaking role as business manager and owner of the Newark Eagles, Effa Manley always fought for what was right. And she always swung for the fences.  From author Audrey Vernick and illustrator Don Tate comes the remarkable story of an all-star of a woman.
