Summary
This film tells the inspiring story of how Nicole Sherry McFadyen rose through the ranks to become head groundskeeper for the Baltimore Orioles, on of only two women ever to hold that position in the history of Major League Baseball. The film traces Nicole{u2019}s journey from her first internship with the Orioles through her first job in the minor leagues with a New York Yankees farm team to her triumphant return to the Baltimore Orioles as the head groundskeeper of Camden Yards, on the most stories ballparks in baseball. The result is a deeply personal, humorous, and uplifting look at how one woman navigated the sometimes hostile terrain of a male-dominated industry, persevered and excelled against all odds, and ultimately broke the glass ceiling. An ideal educational resource for countering the negative stereotypes of women that pervade the culture..."A tremendous classroom resource! If you're looking for a positive and inspiring story to counter the negative narratives about women that too often circulate in our culture, this film is a must-see!" Dave Zirin, Sports Editor, The Nation magazine.."An inspiring and uplifting film that redefines what is possible for women in sports-related careers. Watch this film and use it in your courses!".Diane Israel Professor of Transpersonal Counseling Psychology and Trustee, Naropa University
