Fastpitch features an interesting mix of personal stories from eclectic characters, such as former UA player Jennie Finch. 

Detailing the vibrant 129-year history the book shares the origins of a sport played by thousands across the country.

The book share's the unknown history of softball from the perspectives of influential players who experienced the sport's key moments.
