A charmingly illustrated and inspiring book, Women in Sports highlights the achievements and stories of fifty notable women athletes—from well-known figures like tennis player Billie Jean King and gymnast Simone Biles, to lesser-known athletes like skateboarding pioneer Patti McGee and Toni Stone, the first woman to play baseball in a men’s professional league.
