Just because I’m not a partaker in America’s Favorite Pastime doesn’t mean I don’t think it shouldn’t be celebrated. So, this year, I’ve decided to mix up a special "Homerun Martini" and pull out one of my favorite movies – "A League of Their Own."
But since my daughter isn’t old enough to enjoy a drunk Tom Hanks telling the team that "there’s no crying in baseball," I found the second best thing – the book Dirt on Their Skirts, the story inspiration for the movie. Based on real accounts from players in the All American Girls Professional Baseball League, this is the perfect way to get your daughter excited about a sport that we may have only thought was "for the boys."
And while you’re at it, check out the League’s cute pennants – Made in the USA, of course. Perfect for decorating your sporty little girls’ room. –Kristen
Happy Opening Day!
