Former twice collegiate softball player of the year, Heather Gadway coaches the Morro Bay University team.  Her demanding dad Dave calls her, but she ignores him to focus on the team’s pitcher though she expects a lecture once she calls him back.  Dr. Freeman informs her that her dad had a heart attack and is about to undergo surgery.  Heather returns home to be there for her father and to manage his minor league team the Holly Springs Falcons though he does not believe she is capable of doing the job.

Recovering alcoholic Garrett Wolf knows the Falcons especially Dave Garrett took a chance by signing him at twenty-seven and three years out of baseball, but the team’s survival was shaky before the owner’s emergency surgery.  Fearing his career will be over if Dave fails to return, Garrett likes the small southern town lifestyle after being out of control in nearby Atlanta.  When Heather meets her players they all share doubts about a female softball superstar managing their team.  However, she and Garrett are attracted to each other, but both know a romantic entanglement could kill their respective goals to make it in baseball.

A League Of Her Own is a Heartwarming baseball romance starring a former superstar with a bone marrow need to prove her worthy to her dad and a recovering alcoholic with a bone marrow need to prove him worthy to play in the Majors.  A fast-paced nine innings, Karen Rock authors a lively pitchers’ duel.
