Summary
Effa always loved baseball. As a young woman, she would go to Yankee Stadium just to see Babe Ruth's mighty swing. But she never dreamed she would someday own a baseball team. Or be the first and only woman ever inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. From her childhood in Philadelphia to her groundbreaking role as business manager and owner of the Newark Eagles, Effa Manley always fought for what was right. And she always swung for the fences
Summary
The first (and, so far, only) woman to be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame was African-American Effa Manley. Manley loved baseball as a girl, and she grew up to work in the sport, breaking ground as a business manager and co-owner of the Newark Eagles Negro League team, where she fought for racial equality. -- Description by Dawn Towery
