Kay Cover, A League of Her Own

Kay Cover was naturally athletic, but opportunities for talented young women prior to Title IX were limited at best. When her five daughters were old enough to play ball, she started a fast-pitch softball league in Red Cloud in the early 1970s. Untrained, but naturally gifted as a coach, Kay Cover not only had an undefeated team, she inspired her players with a new vision for their futures.
