ABOUT ANN AND HER MEMOIRS

One of the first Women to be inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, currently the Vice President of the Phoenix Suns (NBA) and the Phoenix Mercury (WNBA), Ann Meyers Drysdale has been one of the greatest stars in the history of basketball. Time Magazine recently called her one of the ten greatest female athletes of all time. A female first in many categories, she is still the only woman ever to sign a free agent contract with an NBA team, the Indiana Pacers, back in 1979.


A standout 5’9”, blond-haired, blue-eyed point guard, Meyers Drysdale was the first player to be part of the U.S. National team while still in high school.  She then went on to become the first woman to be signed to a four-year athletic scholarship at UCLA, the first four-time Kodak All American, male or female, and the overall number one pick in the WBL (part of the now defunct Women's Professional Basketball League). 

She took the first ever US Women’s Basketball Team to the Olympic Games in 1976 and helped them bring home a Silver Medal. She continued to be a standout player at several  international tournaments and was the only woman ever asked to compete in ABC Men's Superstars.   Meyers Drysdale is also an award-winning sports journalist.  She is the modern day version of Babe Didrikson Zaharias. While there are several books out about Babe, surprisingly there has never been any book written or published about Meyers Drysdale’s life......until now.
