Oklahoma author Bill Plummer III

LATEST BOOK: A Series of Their Own: The History of the Women’s College World Series

A Series of Their Own is the fourteenth softball book Bill Plummer III has been involved with during his lengthy sports journalism career. A journalism graduate from Indiana University, he has written one book, co-authored two others and contributed to eleven more.

"A Series of Their Own is probably the book that I am proudest of," Plummer says. "Few other book projects I have worked on has the research and detail of this volume."

A native of Syracuse, N.Y., he has lived in Oklahoma City since 1979. For more than thirty years he worked as the communications coordinator/National Softball Hall of Fame services manager at the national office of the Amateur Softball Association, the national governing body of softball in the United States. He has worked as a journalist and organizer on every Women's College World Series since 1990.

A member of five softball halls of fame, including the ASA National Softball Hall of Fame, Plummer retired from the Amateur Softball Association in 2009 and has since devoted much of his time writing about softball for several online sports magazines.
