While attending San Jose State in 1974 I stated in a seminar on liberation that I believed by the year 2000 there would be a woman playing professional baseball. Every woman and half the men in the class almost shouted me out of the room. Women aren't built for it, etc. I stood fast and maintained that baseball is a sport where numerous talents and skills are needed. Also, hundreds of women could beat me handily at tennis and someday one of them will dedicate themselves to baseball and she will make the team and collect a check. Thanx Tiffany for proving my point some 35 years later. Good luck and have fun!
