The True Story of Margaret, Nellie, and Rose. In 1934 three teenage girls played hardball on the last traveling bloomer girl baseball team. Margaret, Nellie, and Rose came from different backgrounds and had different reasons for playing baseball. When the season was over they followed different paths but playing baseball profoundly affected their lives and even helped determine their careers. This speech touches on the Great Depression, travel, barnstorming baseball teams, and women who wanted to play hardball.
This program is presented by Barbara Gregorich.
