520 Eighteen-year-old Jill Cafferty just made history. Her
high school's star pitcher, she is now the first woman
drafted by a major league baseball team. Only days after
her high school graduation, she'll join the Pittsburgh
Pirates' Class A Short Season team... but not everyone is
happy to have her there. On top of the pressure heaped on
every pitcher, Jill must deal with defying conventions and
living up to impossible expectations, all while living
away from home for the first time. She'll go head-to-head
against those who are determined to keep baseball an all-
male sport. Despite the reassurance of coaches and
managers alike, a few of her teammates are giving her
trouble. The media presence following her at each game is
inescapable. And to top it all off, Jill is struggling
with the responsibilities of being a national hero and a
role model for young women everywhere. How can she be a
role model when she's not even sure she made the right
choice for herself? Didn't baseball used to be fun?
