Baseball Season Arrives
Balls, bats and bases will be in our faces until winter. Which obviously means baseball season opened yesterday.
For lovers of the sport, or lovers of awesome women, start the season with this story:
On April 2, of 1931, 17-year-old Jackie Mitchell, a pitcher for a AA minor league team The Chattanooga Lookouts, struck out New York Yankees and Murderers’ Row members Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig in consecutive at-bats.
Essentially, a girl competed against and beat two of the most well-known baseball players of all time. Boom.
