*Linedrives and Lipstick:

The Untold Story of Women's Baseball
Event detail
 
Sounds of America’s pastime: the crack of the bat on the ball, the roar of the crowd, the cheers of “Atta girl!” While the 1992 film A League of Their Own introduced contemporary audiences to the WWII-era All-American Girls Professional Baseball League, women’s baseball actually began with the creation of the Vassar College team in 1866. 
The exhibition Linedrives and Lipstick, celebrates the legends and landmarks of the dedicated women athletes who hit, fielded, slid, and caught with passion.
Opening event: Sunday, January 26, Main Library, Koret auditorium, come meet baseball scholars David Block, Jean Ardell, Dorothy Mills, Leslie Heaphy and Monica Nucciarone as they discuss the history of women in baseball.
A book sale by Readers Books follows the event.
The exhibition is toured by Exhibits USA, a national program of the Mid-America Arts Alliance and co-sponsored by the Lefty O'Doul's Chapter, Society for American Baseball Research (SABR) and Friends of the San Francisco Public Library.
