Fifty fictional legendary baseball players and their illustrated biographies. Bushers takes a whimsical look at the Deadball Era, long before free agency, luxury boxes and enormous salaries. It‘s a wild collection of baseball’s greatest goofballs, wannabes, could’ve-beens and never-wases, hailing from every state in the Union—representing actual towns like Nuttsville, Virginia; Parole, Maryland, and Sweet Lips, Tennessee. Bushers tells a tale of fame squandered by wrong-way baserunning, smelly feet, narcolepsy and uncontrollable sweat. With illustrations by Ed Attanasio and text written by Attanasio and Eric Gouldsberry, this graphic novel takes a funny look at baseball’s early years through the eyes of two passionate lifelong fans.

This compendium of fables in visual form features women negotiating different types of gender-based violence and inequity in various cultures worldwide. Five graphic narratives expose such issues as femicide, child molestation and female genital mutilation without defining the affected women and girls by their unfortunate circumstances. Highlighting the power of intelligence, humor and decency and the willingness of people to work together to effect social change, these fables—each presented bilingually in English and the protagonist’s native language of Spanish, German, Arabic or Swahili—transcend boundaries of gender, race, language and geography without ignoring differences. Subtle ink washes, brilliant colors and detailed crosshatching distinguish the acclaimed magical realist artwork through which the stories unfold.

While baseball is traditionally perceived as a game to be played, enjoyed, and reported from a masculine perspective, it has long been beloved among women—more so than any other spectator sport. Breaking into Baseball: Women and the National Pastime upends baseball’s accepted history to at last reveal just how involved women are, and have always been, in the American game. Through provocative interviews and deft research, Jean Hastings Ardell devotes a detailed chapter to each of the seven ways women participate in the game—from the stands as fans, on the field as professionals or as amateur players, behind the plate as umpires, in the front office as executives, in the press box as sportswriters and reporters, or in the shadows as Baseball Annies. From these revelatory vantage points, Ardell invites overdue appreciation for the affinity and talent women bring to baseball at all levels and shows us our national game anew. From its ancient origins in spring fertility rituals through contemporary marketing efforts geared toward an ever-increasing female fan base, baseball has always had a feminine side, and generations of women have sought—and been sought after—to participate in the sport, even when doing so meant challenging the cultural mores of their era. In that regard, women have been breaking into baseball from the very beginning. But recent decades have witnessed great strides in legitimizing women’s roles on the diamond as players and umpires as well as in vital management and media roles. In her thoughtfully organized and engagingly written survey, Ardell offers a chance for sports enthusiasts and historians of both genders to better appreciate the storied and complex relationship women have so long shared with the game and to glimpse the future of women in baseball. Breaking into Baseball is augmented by twenty-four illustrations and a foreword from Ila Borders, the first woman to play more than three seasons of men’s professional baseball.
