AJ Andrews is a professional softball player known for making spectacular diving catches in the outfield. In 2016 she was the first woman to be awarded a Rawlings Gold Glove, an award given to the best fielders in Major League Baseball for decades. Knocking Down the Fences tells the story of AJ's career after this win - her ambition, her unbelievable work ethic, and all the additional barriers she faces as a woman trying to make it as a professional athlete.
