Toni Stone is an ace ballplayer who knows her stats, plus she’s got a great arm. Rejected by the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League because of her race, she becomes the first woman to play professional baseball on a man’s team in the Negro Leagues, shattering expectations and creating her own set of rules. Filled with humor and the love of the game, Huntington favorite Lydia R. Diamond knocks it out of the park with this beautiful, rich portrait of a trailblazing woman. Play ball!

An Original Play

Written and Directed by Lydia R. Diamond (Stick Fly, Smart People, The Bluest Eye at the Huntington)

Inspired by Curveball: The Remarkable True Story of Toni Stone by Martha Ackmann
