Karen Commins narrates this memoir by Ila Borders, a pioneer in baseball, with unwavering enthusiasm. Borders, who played on men's teams in college and professionally, takes an honest look at her life, from her time on the diamond and how she was treated to her quiet, solitary struggles with being a closeted gay woman. Commins gives every aspect of Borders's life the right emotional touch--from her gritty commentaires on the mound to the tragedies and challenges she endured off the field. Commins changes her voice just slightly when quoting a player, coach, family member, or friend, never overdoing it. Borders's story is an important one, and one told with genuine reflection.
