    “The Girl Who Struck Out Babe Ruth” | UmpBump.com | A baseball fan blog

    Jackie Mitchell was called into the game in relief. To face Ruth. And what followed will be remembered forever:

    “(Ruth) watched her first sinker dart low for ball one. Mitchell followed with a sinker on the outside corner, which the Babe swung through and missed. Grinning, the “Sultan of Swat” swung at the next offering and missed for strike two. The next pitch was another sinker on the corner of the plate, which Ruth watched sail by for called strike three. At that point, according to The Baseball Chronology, the Babe “kicked the dirt” and “gave his bat a wild heave” as he stormed unhappily to the dugout.”

    As if that were not enough, Mitchell then had to go up against Gehrig as well. But the “Iron Horse” followed suit, unable to touch Jackie’s sinker, and struck out on three pitches. A seventeen-year old girl had struck out Ruth and Gehrig on seven pitches combined.

    Think of all the talent and brains mankind has wasted by believing women were only made as penis depositories and baby bakers.

    Not at all. There's also cooking, cleaning, laundry, housekeeping, etc... Sex and bearing children are simply a couple of the things that women were created for.

    Theres always an exception to the rule. There are some guys who are good at cooking. A common concensus is that the feat in question was just a publicity stunt. She was scheduled to pitch on April 1st but it rained that day. Either way good stuff.
