Mesquite Arts Council presents Step Right Up: Linedrives and Lipstick: The Untold Story of Women’s Baseball. From the covers of national publications including the Saturday Evening Post and Collier’s to advertisements for soap and other household products, women ballplayers became inspirational icons and national celebrities. From early games played before small, yet curious crowds in 1875 to the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League’s 1948 season that attracted 910,000 paying fans, the history of women’s baseball was as exciting and tumultuous as a fast-paced game.

Linedrives and Lipstick celebrates the legends and landmarks of the dedicated women athletes who hit, fielded, slid, and caught with passion. Curated by Saint Mary’s College Archivist John Kovach.

Hours are M-F 8a-5p and during performances. Call the Arts Council for information at 972/216-6444.
