A whole other ball game: women's literature on women's sport

Book Cover
Noonday Press,
Pub. Date:

Since the late 1800s, women have repeatedly proven their fitness for competitive sport...simply by playing the game. Any game. Off court and on; despite all opposition. A literary first, A Whole Other Ball Game deals with all aspects of women's competitive sports, from the thrill of winning before hometown fans to the interpersonal dynamics on a team. This engaging collection of short stories, poems, and novel excerpts tells the exciting story of women's sports from the sportswoman's own point of view.

Joli Sandoz has played, coached, and written about competitive athletics since her first plunge from the starting blocks in 1961. Her sporting credits include working as the first woman track coach at Harvard. She teaches American Studies at The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington.
