Japanese schoolgirl drafted by pro team
TOKYO (AP) - A 16-year-old schoolgirl is making a pitch to become the first woman to play professional baseball in Japan.
High school student Eri Yoshida was drafted by the Kobe 9 Cruise, a professional team in a new independent Japanese league that starts its first season in April.
"I always dreamed of becoming a professional," Yoshida said at a news conference Monday. "I have only just been picked by the team and haven't achieved anything yet."
Yoshida, a right-hander who is 5 feet and 114 pounds, throws a sidearm knuckleball and wants to emulate Boston Red Sox knuckleballer Tim Wakefield.
Yoshida threw a hitless inning against male batters during a tryout this month and was among 33 players picked in the draft.
In memory of my brother Michael, who gave me my love of sports. I will miss you!

Re: Japanese schoolgirl drafted by pro team
i read about this the other day. good for her if she can make the team. she's gotta have some skill to be drafted. and a sidearm knuckleball, thats crazy! hitting a overhand knuckle is hard enough but she can drop that angle and throw it sidearm!
