I grew up in a time when girls were not really encouraged to play sports. I had no idea that there were actual women baseball teams. I drove by the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown for years without ever stopping. One day I took a detour and stopped in. I was amazed to see the role women played in the sport. I still feel proud of those first women that broke the barrier in sports. Every girl that wins a medal at the Olympics is standing on their shoulders.
