Meet the first woman to pitch in professional baseball (Video)

How to break the glass ceiling? With a baseball bat. Staten Island FerryHawks pitcher and outfielder Kelsie Whitemore is the first woman to start in a professional ball league. “The first person I called when they wanted to sign me was my dad,” she told the Post. “I said, ‘Guess what, dad, I’ll be in New York for the summer. “”

Whitemore’s ultimate goal is to play in the majors. Luckily for her, the independent Atlantic League saw over 950 players sign with the major leagues. “She just blends right into everything,” said Matt Solter, another FerryHawks pitcher. “She comes out, works hard and does whatever she has to do to get ready for the game.”
