Author Bob Kann tells the tale of Kenosha native Joyce Westerman who played for eight years in the All American Girls Professional Baseball League (depicted in the movie A League of Their Own) and helped change the perception that sports are too tough for women. Learn about Joyce's experiences in the league, struggles during the Depression, and challenges working at American Motors when women were not welcome in the work force. Joyce's "can do" attitude in sports and life serve as an inspiration. Part of the Local Experts program series.
