The Girl in Centerfield
Listen & watch some local history when AADL presents “The Girl in Centerfield” on Wednesday, September 15 from 6:30-8:30 PM at the Downtown Library. This documentary tells the 1973 story of 12 year old Carolyn King, who just wanted to play ball on an Ypsilanti Little League team, except the National Little League organization didn't allow girls to play. Find out about the political fallout that occurred & how the Ypsilanti City Council stood up for her. Not long after, the National Little League changed their No-Girls rule. Producers Buddy Moorehouse and Brian Kruger will be on hand for a Q and A after the film.
