Spring Surprise

March 20, 1934 – Mildred “Babe” Didrickson, the famous all-around female athlete who won two gold medals in track at the 1932 Olympics in Los Angeles and later became a member of the World Golf Hall of Fame, pitched the first inning for the Philadelphia Athletics in a spring exhibition game against the Brooklyn Dodgers. She walked one batter, but gave up no hits.
