- DescriptionOn August 16, 1920, Yankees pitcher Carl Mays threw a fastball that struck Cleveland Indians shortstop Ray Chapman in the head. Chapman died the next morning. Hit by Pitch is a nfiction graphic vel about these men, their lives and legacies, and the event that linked them forever. Born the same year (1891), both in Kentucky, they had similar beginnings but opposing personalities. This wonderfully drawn work brings the two men and their era back to life.

After several years working as a freelance illustrator, she found a way to combine the two, publishing her baseball-themed comic art, including the series Great Moments in Baseball.
