Ypsilanti Little League Pioneer Carolyn King

Thanks to iSPY for publishing my story on onetime Ypsilanti Little League pioneer Carolyn King, whose insistence on playing on the local team led to a nationwide change in Little League's erstwhile ban against women.

A new documentary film about Carolyn's life, featuring many scenes of old-time Ypsi, will be screened during the Heritage Festival. "The Girl in Center Field" will be shown at Ypsi High School on Saturday, August 21, at 8 p.m. Not sure if there's a charge but don't think so.
