Sliding into Home by Dori Hillestad Butler
Recommended for: Grades 4-6

There’s a big difference between baseball and softball. When Joelle moves to a small town, she is only allowed to play softball. She battles the school system over this. In a different twist, she finds other girls interested in baseball, changes focus and strives to establish a girls baseball league. Some interesting help comes from older women who played in the Women’s Baseball League in WWII. A good girls’ sports story.
