Konwinski Makes it to the Majors

Konwinski with YankeesBatter up..Hear that call? It's time for Dolly to play ball.
A hot sunny Sunday afternoon at the Yankees Steinbrenner Field. Paul the Yankee announcer makes the call....throwing out the first pitch Dolly Konwinski member of the Grand Rapids Chicks, of the All American Girls Professional Baseball League and in the movie A League of Their Own....turning to professional bowling after baseball! The crowd's cheers are so loud, Yankee fans, Braves fans, it took all fears away, worrying about throwing a strike! The catcher gives me a #1...no no, I can't throw a fastball..so I shook him off....four fingers down....yes, a change-up...my speed. YES! a Strike! My son Rob and grandson are waiting for me...."nice strike, mom" "hey gram" all smiles. On the way back to my seat...."nice strike, Dolly" "way-to-go Dolly". Husband Bob waiting with a big smile..."nice strike!" Lot's of pictures, autographs. Settle down Dolly...."go get me a beer Aaron"!
