Review: Mary Garber loved to play, watch, and write about any and all sports. But in the early 1940s when she became a journalist, women weren't even allowed in the press box. This beautiful book tells the inspiring story of how Mary overcame multiple gender-related hurdles, attended games at the all-black schools, and submitted articles highlighting under-recognized minority athletes, earning acclaim as the first female sports writer.
