The article on the right tells the tale of Vernie Beatrice "Jackie" Mitchell, a 17 year-old, left-handed pitcher from Tennessee who made it known that she wanted to strike-out Babe Ruth - and she did (and Lou Gehrig and Tony Lazzeri):

"... The Babe swung again and missed. On the next pitch, he let the ball go by. The umpire said, 'Strike three!' and the Babe went back to the bench, shaking his head."

"Gehrig came next and took three mighty swings and sat down. Lazzeri swung and missed one pitch, fouled another and eventually drew a walk. At this point, Jackie was taken out of the game - to roaring applause.
