DVD Price: $20.00
Length: 60 minutes

Written, produced, and directed by award-winning, best-selling author Lynn Ames, this historically important documentary chronicles, for the first time ever in her own words, the real-life story of Hall-of-Famer Dot Wilkinson and the heyday of women's softball. Chock full of rare still photos and videos from the 1940s, this is a must-have keepsake.


Bonus items included: Dozens of exclusive still photographs from Dot Wilkinson's personal collection, and two nearly lost-to-time short films featuring Dot's partner of 48-years Estelle "Ricki" Caito. The first film highlights Ricki and her teammates with the Parichy Brothers of Chicago professional softball team playing against the Bluebells. The second film shows Ricki and her teammates taking infield and batting practice.
