Ila Borders: Breaking Barriers


borders-ilaTwenty years ago today, Ila Borders broke barriers in baseball when she became the first woman to pitch in a professional minor league baseball game. In 1997, Borders signed with the St. Paul Saints and played in her first game on May 31. Borders was also the first women to receive a college scholarship to play men’s baseball, the first woman to earn a win in college baseball, and the first woman to earn a win in a professional baseball game.

Today Borders is a firefighter and paramedic in Portland, OR, but she still makes time to talk about her experiences in baseball. The St. Paul Saints recently had an Ila Borders bobblehead giveaway to commemorate the 20th anniversary of her first game and her book, Making My Pitch: A Woman’s Baseball Odyssey, was published last month.

Other women’s firsts in baseball include:

  • Jackie Mitchell, the first woman to pitch for a minor league team, the Chattanooga Lookouts, in an exhibition game in 1931.
  • Toni Stone, the first of three women to play in the Negro Leagues. Stone played for the barnstorming team, the San Francisco Sea Lions, in 1945 before signing with the New Orleans Creoles in 1949. (The other women to play for the Negro Leagues were Mamie Johnson and Connie Morgan.)
  • Mamie Johnson, the first woman pitcher in the Negro Leagues. She signed with the Indianapolis Clowns in 1953.
  • Eri Yoshida, the first woman drafted by a Japanese professional baseball team. Yoshida signed with the Kobe 9 Cruise of the Kansai Independent Baseball League in 2008.

Happy anniversary, Ila!

Bobblehead Instructions


PNATS

I need a pinch hitter for Lucas Giolito Bobblehead Night at the Potomac Nationals, since I’ll be out of town. So, I’ve enlisted the help of my cousin. I figure if I prepare him early, he’ll be ready to come off the bench and get me the coveted bobble. Besides, he has been on several bobblehead and gnome missions before. He’s ready to go out on his own. I’m sure he’ll hit a home run.

Naturally, he needs to know the important details of how to get in the special Season Ticket holder line in order to be one of the lucky 1,500 to get the Giolito Bobble. At the beginning of the season, I purchased the special ticket pack so that I would have the ability to get into the stadium early, potentially ensuring my success at obtaining the elusive P-Nats bobbleheads. He needs to know exactly where to stand and exactly when to get there. The details of the operation are critical. It must be executed according to plan. Nothing can go wrong. We know what happens when things go wrong.

Unfortunately, I did not realize how complicated it sounded until it put it in text message form:

Text #1: You need to get there early. Like 45 min to an hour before. Take someone who can stand outside in the sun that long.

Text #2: The game is at 6:35. Gates open at 5:05. You’ll have my passes to get in 15 min early – so that’s 4:50. Need to be in line by maybe 4:15 at the latest.

Text #3: Unless it’s a double header, because of a rainout or something. Then the timeline will change.

Text #4: Have cold water handy when you stand in line. The line forms on the right hand side of that baseball field in front of the stadium – so take the second path, not the one that leads straight to the gate. Maybe I need to send a map so that makes sense.

               Response: Ok. I will need instructions based on double header or not.

 Text #5: LOL. Yeah. I’ll make a map.

Yeah. I’m not sure I’d understand those directions even with the map. It’s not that I doubt my cousin’s abilities. I doubt my ability to write decent instructions.

Giolito bobblehead night isn’t until August 6. We’ll have time to prepare. Maybe we can do a dry run. Hopefully, all will go as planned.

The Bobble Belly

Remember that home run from a few weeks ago? THE home run? The first career home run for Bartolo Colon? Well, it’s now been memorialized in a bobble head. Or, rather, a bobble head AND belly. (Also referred to as a bobble stomach and a bobble gut.)

Yep. You read that correctly. It was reported on Friday that Clark Toys is offering a commemorative bobble of the event where both the head and stomach bobble. Cool. I SO need one!

 

 

In case you haven’t seen enough of it, here’s the video:

 

 

Happy Monday!

The Annual Bobble List


The first bobblehead of the season was given out Thursday – Trout and Pujols. But don’t worry – if you missed out, there are plenty more to come. Major League Baseball teams are giving away a total of 192 bobbleheads and gnomes this year, though several require fans to purchase special tickets to obtain them. I’ll post the minor league bobblehead list next week.

Happy collecting!

Planning for Bobbles


c12d51868f6da4a15c087f5bb547dceaOn this cold winter’s day, I thought it would help if we looked forward to baseball season. And since yesterday’s post was about bobbleheads, today I thought I’d follow up with the list so far of bobblehead and gnome giveaways for 2016. The Brewers have announced they are giving away several bobbleheads during Spring Training, and they also have several bobbleheads giveaways for all fans during the season. Unfortunately, to date, only a few minor league teams have scheduled their bobblehead giveways, but I’m sure there will be more to come!

Happy Friday!
