Katie Casey takes the bat in this story based on a line from "Take Me Out To The BallGame" and an amalgam of the real young women who formed the Girls' Professional Baseball League in the mid-20th century. The retro art style, colors, and scenes emphasize the times, and the social attitudes are almost jarring to today's sensibilities: "What good is baseball to a girl"? In Casey's case, it was EVERYTHING!
