Justine Siegal made history yesterday being the first female to ever throw batting practice to MLB players. She's used to this sorta groundbreaking stuff though, as she's been the only woman coaching in the college baseball ranks over the past 3 years and even spent time as the 1st base coach for an Independent League team.
Anyway, Siegal chucked balls at Indians (that sounds so politically incorrect!), but I'm talking about the Cleveland Indians. Apparently she made quite the impression too...
"If you didn't see the ponytails, she would have fit right in. She did great."
~Paul Phillips/Catcher (took swings against her)
"She made me look bad. She was pretty impressive. She throws strikes. It was very good."
~Manny Acta/Manager (who also tosses BP)
Siegal now moves onto Oakland's camp to work magic on the Athletics batters.
*I can see how Phillips said Justine would fit right in, because at initial glance at the photo I thought it was Timmy Lincecum.
