Baseball History – Effa Manley

Guess what? Effa Manley has just been chosen as the first woman ever to be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame! She was the owner of a Negro League team called the Eagles and a great advocate for African Americans in baseball! She apparently did a lot to promote and push for African Americans in baseball, both as players and executives. She sounds like a pretty amazing woman! And now she is making history of her own as the first woman in the Hall of Fame!

    I don’t care about baseball at all but that is awesome.

    Is this a great country, or what? But Buck O’Neill should have made it, too. You can look it up!
