    Re: 13 Year Old Girl's Jersey Going in Hall of Fame

    rediculous if you ask me. That is the hall of fame. Not the hall of little girl plays little league baseball and does good.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    Sound a little better than just good. 0 losses in 4 years and 2 perfect games last season? I realize its little league but still impressive numbers.

    And besides its not like they giving her a bust next to Cy Young.

    it's because she throws a knuckleball. Wait till she gets to High School and gets destroyed when the physical development of the boys catches up to hers. This is ridiculous, the Hall of Fame isn't a place to put circus acts.


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    As was said before, its an EXHIBIT. Nothing is permanent of hers going into the Hall of Fame. It will be there for a few months and gone.

    $50 says you couldn't hit her ... even with all your internalized rage focused on it.

    Holy crap there is a lot of envy in this thread. It is a nice gesture and an interesting story. Calm down.

    and an exhibit on women in baseball. She threw two perfect games against boys. I think it's very appropriate and awesome.

    Re: 13 Year Old Girl's Jersey Going in Hall of Fame

    Has nothing to do with jealousy and has everything to do with a news cycle that is looking for anything to put on the airwaves, so they make an icon out of a girl that is physically and mentally superior to the boys she is playing against right now. Is she an excellent little league player, no doubt, but is there any reason to put her jersey in the hall of fame with the greatest players ever? No.
    I just hate it when the media try's to force feed us human interest stories.

    Yea but there are hundreds of 13yr old boys around the country doing stuff like this and they don't get recognized. Just another example of equality between the sexes I guess.

    and there's 1 girl.

    seems like she might be pretty special - maybe an exhibit or something would be appropriate. oh wait, the hall just like a mosque - holy, and full of men.

    Forcefeed? It's an internet link. I doubt this is going to be all the rage on MSNBC/CNN/FOXNews/or even ESPN.

    Your jealousy is manifesting into unbridled rage.
