First woman MLB player - when?
OK, I confess my wife- who is not enough of a baseball fan to ever post here- has put me up to this. But it does interest me.
While certainly it's important to acknowledge that there are physical differences between men and women, and upper body strength is one of them, I don't buy there are no women whatsoever skilled enough to play professionally. I know a few have (mostly pitchers, it seems), but they've faced enormous prejudice.
So what do you think? Is it possible? Will it happen in our lifetimes? And do you think, as I do, that the first (if it happens) will likely be a pitcher?
