Book Details

No Crying in Baseball is a rollicking, revelatory deep dive into a one-of-a-kind film. Before A League of Their Own , few American girls could imagine themselves playing professional ball (and doing it better than the boys). But Penny Marshall’s genre outlier became an instant classic & significant aha moment for countless young women who saw that throwing like a girl was far from an insult. Part fly-on-the-wall narrative, part immersive pop nostalgia, No Crying in Baseball is for readers who love stories about subverting gender roles as well as fans of the film who remain passionate thirty years after its release. With key anecdotes from the cast, crew, and diehard fanatics, Carlson presents the definitive, first-ever history of the making of the treasured film that inspired generations of Dottie Hinsons to dream bigger and aim for the sky.
