I love winter, but am feeling a desire to watch some baseball. In honour of that "catchers and pitchers report in a few weeks!" mania, I'm posting this picture of the great Jackie Mitchell for your edification. As the story goes, she struck out Ruth and Gehrig in 1931.

This is from my upcoming book Baseballogy - available from Annick Press on Feb 3rd! Whether Mitchell did or didn't K the Bambino and the Iron Horse isn't the point. She was an awesome baseball player and features big in my chapter on women in baseball.

(NOTE: I also did all the pics for this book on my tablet, instead of transferring pen and ink sketches. It was fun!)
