This Week In Baseball History

Mar 27, 2019

During the World Series in 1977, Melissa Ludtke, a credentialed writer for Sports Illustrated, was denied entrance to the teams' clubhouses in the wake of Game 6, while her male colleagues were invited in with open arms. This touched off a legal battle that ended 40 years ago, when the courts ordered MLB to provide equal access for reporters who are women. Yahoo! Sports's Liz Roscher (@lizroscher) joins Mike and Bill this week to talk about Ludtke and her fight, and the uphill battle women still have to be involved in a sport that sometimes acts like it doesn't want them. Plus, happy birthday to Ferris Fain and Roy Thomas.
