Throw like a Girl: How to Dream Big & Believe in Yourself (Audiobook)


By Jennie Finch & Ann Killion

Narrated by Chloe Cannon

Jennie Finch is arguably the greatest women’s softball player of all time - and certainly the most famous. She is a two-time Olympic gold medal winner and has pitched exhibitions against star Major League Baseball players. Her record against these star MLB men: 3 and 0 - striking out every player she faced, victims of her powerful, rising fastball. Clearly Jennie is an athletic phenom, but she wasn’t born that way. She worked hard and she worked smart, learning from her mistakes along the way. In Throw Like a Girl, listeners will enjoy Jennie’s life story as well as learn from both her athletic and life wisdom.   

The evidence is overwhelming: sports help girls grow into strong women. Scientific studies and anecdotal evidence confirm that athletic girls not only grow up to be healthier; they learn teamwork, gain inner confidence, and become society's leaders. Sports help preteen and teenage girls make the right choices in a society that is sending them incredibly mixed messages about who they are supposed to be. Jennie speaks directly to these girls, filling the roles of girlfriend, big sister, team captain, and mentor. 

A smart, credible, and accomplished voice from an athlete who is strong and feminine, fiercely competitive, and fashionably cool, Jennie is someone young women will listen to and take to heart. Jennie's message: Believe in yourself. Go for it, girls.
