February is Black History Month, so you’re likely to see a lot of Google Doodles dedicated to pioneers in African American history in various fields.
Today’s (February 9) fun artwork was inspired by Toni Stone, the first female regular player on a Major League Baseball team.
With this, fans are waiting for her sports biopic, which oddly hasn’t been created yet. We have compiled a list of other media you must accept during this time.

tony stone movie alternative
A well-known alternative is a biography The Curve Ball: The Extraordinary Story of Tony Stone Published in 2010 by Martha Ackmann.
The book outlines Stone’s childhood in Minnesota, where her mother encouraged her to pursue academics. However, it was clear she was a natural athlete, so she ended up moving to San Francisco to play for four black league baseball teams.
As expected, Stone wasn’t welcomed with open arms in the male-dominated industry, but Ackerman highlighted her passion and commitment to fighting the skeptics.
