A Strong Right Arm: The Story of Mamie Peanut Johnson (Carter G Woodson Honor Book (Awards)) by Michelle Y. Green

Mamie Johnson looks the batter in the eye. Sizes him up for a curve- or a fastball. Stretches her 52 frame. And pops a surefire, windup, coming-right-at-ya pitch smack dab over the plate. One that lets the batter know that this peanut of a girl means business. Fueled by her passion for the game and buoyed by the inspiration of Jackie Robinson, Mamie Johnson is determined to be a professional baseball pitcher. From the time she insists on trying out for the all-male all-white Police Athletic League team until she becomes one of only three women to play in the Negro Leagues, this biography of Mamie Johnsons life shows that courage-and a fierce curveball-can make a childhood dream come true. Illustrated with nineteen black-and-white photographs.
