The pioneering basketball star covers the story of her life: growing up in a large family, competition on the court, stardom at UCLA, tryout with the NBA’s Indiana Pacers, career as a sportscaster, marriage to baseball pitcher Don Drysdale, and life as a mom. Pam Ward’s narration sounds determined, which is perfect for the tough competitor Drysdale is. The listener can picture a gutsy woman, on the court or in the broadcast booth. Ward tells the stories clearly with the right amount of emotion, softening her tone during the tragic parts. A follow-up interview with the author is included.
