Read full description of the books:
Most young girls never dream of becoming a professional baseball player and very few ever do. But for Dolly Niemiec Konwinski, baseball was her passion, and her biggest dream came true when she signed her first professional contract while she was still in high school! In her autobiography, Summertime Dreams, Yes - Girls Can Play Baseball! Dolly shares the excitement of traveling across the country on a barnstorming tour, being called up to the big league and having to battle each season for a spot in the AAGPBL play-offs. Even after a horrific career-ending accident, baseball has continued to be one of the highlights of her life, leading her to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1988 and to spot in the 1992 classic motion picture, A League of Their Own. From roller-skating as a schoolgirl in Chicago, to pro baseball, and on to a National Championship in Match Team Bowling, Dolly has managed to cram an incredible number of personal accomplishments into just one lifetime. As her story points out, she attained her goals through perseverance and by never taking "no" for an answer, and it's been these same values and ideals that have been so vital in her own personal game plan for success. Summertime Dreams is a lot more than just another book about baseball. It's a story of love, family, disappointment, hard work and dedication... all the things that help make dreams come true. It's a sure bet to entertain and inspire readers of all ages.

Read information about the authorDouglas Williams is a baseball historian whose passion for the game was launched when, as a young boy, he collected bubblegum cards and autographs. His collecting continues even today. It is just one of the avenues he uses to make connections with the players and the games of long ago. His extensive assemblage of baseball artifacts includes many rare and one-of-a-kind pieces that would place on the high end of any appraiser's scale. Williams has sifted through baseball history with a focus on the period of 1920 to 1960.His research and studies have led him to many new friendships with some of the players from that era, as well as their families. Currently, Doug is employed as a marine designer but continues to make time to collect, write, and present lectures on baseball's past to schools, civic organizations, and continuing education programs. His collection, along with his baseball-based associations, have been feature topics for Sports Collectors' Digest magazine and various newspapers.
