Start buying your peanuts and Cracker Jacks because baseball just got even cooler! 17-year-old French Melissa Mayeux just made history. She is the first woman to ever be eligible to be signed by Major League Baseball. This means in the next year or two, you could see a strong woman out on Wrigley, Fenway, Busch, or Yankee Stadium!
“I would like very much to continue playing baseball in France until I’m 18 years old,” she said. “And then have the ability to leave for university or another opportunity abroad. I’d like to stay in baseball as long as possible.” ~ Melissa Mayeux
