The Book of Joe Podcast begins with hosts Tom Verducci and World Series Champion Joe Maddon welcoming Hillsboro Hops Manager Ronnie Gajownik to the show. Ronnie reveals the moment when she was made the first female manager of a Class High-A baseball team. Ronnie discusses the progress the sport is seeing and the possibility of having a female manager in the Major League within ten years. Ronnie grew up as a Cubs fan and talks about the steps that led her to this opportunity. Joe explores Ronnie's approach to handling her team and how she's preparing for Spring Training. Tom asks about the mentors and role models that inspired Ronnie to end up where she is. We wrap up with a 'Reading from The Book of Joe' with Ronnie picking page 34, since she grew up as a fan of Kerry Wood.
