Considering the history of baseball, women play a key roll in the evolution of todays sports. Baseballs intent was a show, but it grew into a necessary tool to maintain baseballs interest in WWII.
April 2, 1931 was an important day in baseball history. On this day the Chattanooga Lookouts, a women’s baseball team, played the New York Yankees in an exhibition game. Thousands packed the stadium to see the Lookouts' pitcher, seventeen-year-old Jackie Mitchell, pitch against the Yankees using her "lefty pitch with a low dip." Jackie made baseball history by striking out baseball greats Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig. This slice-of-life biography explains how Jackie grew up playing ball with her father. He taught her that a girl can do anything she sets her mind to. Jackie spent a lot of time practicing when she was growing up and she was better than good. Jackie Mitchell showed the world of baseball that a girl can be mighty and strike out the greats just as well as anyone.
