Because she was so busy playing baseball, Stone did not have time for school. Shewould rather read books from the library on baseball and on baseball legends. She would "come and go" to school when she had time. In the summer of 1940, when she turned nineteen, Stone officially dropped out of high school. After she was done with school, Stone did not want to settle down and get married like most women did during the time. After all, "A woman has her dreams too." And with that, Toni Stone boarded a bus for San Francisco, California and went to see what she could find.
