Mamie Johnson could pop a surefire, windup, coming-right-at-ya pitch smack dab over the plate. Johnson played professional ball for three years in the Negro Leagues, against some of the best male ballplayers in the country. As her story makes clear, although Jackie Robinson had recently broken the Major League color barrier, the U.S. was still mired in segregation and prejudice. Johnson never let any of this stand in her way, however, and her love of baseball kept her going.
