About this title


Fornoff covered the A's for the Sacramento Bee.

From Library Journal:

Sexism is alive and well in professional sports in America, but inroads are being made. Fornoff, a beat writer assigned to the Oakland Athletics from 1985 to 1991, gives moving testimony of sexist attitudes and actions that confront women sportswriters, both in and out of the locker room. Ballplayer Dave Kingman's gift to her of a live rat is but one example. The struggle for locker room access provides dramatic examples of the difficulty women have in breaking into the "old boy" network in sportswriting. However, this book covers much more than one issue. It offers an entertaining yet sobering description of the life and challenges of a female sportswriter, with insights into the Oakland Athletics and other professional teams. It is a valuable historical record of the achievements and disillusionments of women sportswriters. Recommended for most collections. For an interview with the author, see "Fornoff Exposes the Men in the Locker Room," p. 74.--Ed.
