Breaking the Barriers : A Girl's Dream to Play Little League with the Boys

Description

During a summer family picnic in 1974, Robbin observes a little league game being played in a nearby baseball field. Seeing how much fun the game was, and watching the fans cheer for their teams, Robbin asked her dad to teach her to play baseball. As she practiced, over time, Robbin learned that girls were not allowed to play little league baseball with boys. Refusing to give up her dream, Robbin was excited to learn about a famous court case that ruled that same year, that girls were to be allowed to play little league with boys. The long-standing barrier was finally lifted, and Robbin signed up to play in 1975.A brave and determined Robbin strutted her stuff and showed her community that she could play ball just as well as the boys, on any baseball diamond. Despite encountering jeers, boos, and name-calling from the stands and from the boys, Robbin exceled on the field and played with her head held high for the love of the game.
