The Boys in the Boat meets A League of Their Own in this uplifting true story of a Depression-era championship women's team. Traveling from farm to farm near the tiny Oklahoma college where he coached, Sam Babb recruited talented, hardworking young women and offered them a chance at a better life: a free college education in exchange for playing on his team, the Cardinals. These remarkable athletes found a passion for the game and a loyalty to one another and their coach, and they began to win. At a moment in history when female athletes faced intense scrutiny from influential figures in politics, education, and medicine who denounced women's spots as unhealthy and unladylike, this unlikely group of trailblazers achieved much more than a championship season.
