About This Lesson

In the spring of 1950, 13-year-old Kay Johnston spent her afternoons playing baseball on the neighborhood sandlot in Corning, New York. Kay wanted nothing more than to play Little League baseball. But at that time, it was unthinkable for girls to play on an official team.

At StoryCorps, Kay sat down with her husband, Cy Massar, to remember what she did next.

Originally aired March 30, 2018, on NPR’s Morning Edition.
