If there was anything in the world better than playing baseball, Marcenia Lyle didn't know what it was. She loved the taste of dust clouds as she slid onto base and the sting of the ball in her palm.One sunny day in the 1930s, Marcenia and the boys she plays ball with learn that Gabby Street, a famous baseball manager, is scouting children for a baseball summer camp sponsored by the St. Louis Cardinals. Eager to earn a spot, Marcenia plays her best, but is discouraged when Mr. Street tells her there are no girls in his camp. Determined that baseball is her destiny, Marcenia won't give up, ultimately proving her skill and passion to Mr. Street and her dubious parents. Full of warmth and youthful energy, Catching the Moon is the story of the girl who grew up to become the first woman to play for a professional baseball team. Readers everywhere will be inspired by her courage to dream and her determination to succeed.
