Breaking barriers and bringing a fresh perspective to the world of sports journalism, Jean Fruth has secured a unique position in the industry. Rather than taking a seat at the table, she has chosen to position herself down the third baseline, capturing the essence of America’s favorite game. Jean’s infectious passion for baseball is evident as she explores the storied ballparks of the U.S. and delves into grassroots leagues along Route 66 and beyond.
Jean’s work extends beyond the game itself, focusing on the remarkable contributions of women in baseball. Her project, Grassroots Baseball: Women, documents the inspiring stories of women who have shattered stereotypes and broken barriers, from the diamond to the owner’s box. Through extensive interviews with baseball legends, exploration of the all-women league that inspired the film A League of Their Own, and encounters with the trailblazers energizing the game today, Jean paints a vivid picture of the sport’s rich history and its exciting future.
