Praise For…


“Josephine Morhard is a heroine for our times: A devoted single mother who never took no for an answer, she single-handedly started the first boys' baseball league in America. Josephine enriched the lives of countless young boys and shaped American baseball history. Her daughter-in-law, Ruth Morhard, is a deft biographer and has written a narrative that reads like the best old movies: charming, vivid, and inspirational.”
—Anne Zimmerman, author of AN EXTRAVAGANT HUNGER: THE PASSIONATE YEARS OF M.F.K. FISHER
