Join them when Jean Hastings Ardell discusses her new book Making My Pitch: A Woman’s Baseball Odyssey. This is the true story of Ila Jane Borders who despite formidable obstacles became a Little League prodigy, MVP of her otherwise all male middle school and high school teams, the first woman awarded a baseball scholarship and the first to pitch and win a complete men’s collegiate game. Borders played four professional seasons and in 1998 became the first woman in the modern era to win a professional baseball game. Sponsored by the Lefty O’Doul Chapter of the Society for American Baseball Research (SABR). A book sale by Friends of the San Francisco Public Library follows the event.
