MLB.com: A Canadian knuckleballer will be the first woman to play in the collegiate West Coast League

Claire Eccles, at just 19 years old, has already pitched in two Women’s Baseball World Cups and the 2015 Pan-Am Games. Now, the Canadian knuckleballer will become the first woman to play in the West Coast League, a collegiate summer baseball league ...

“Ichiro has always been my favourite player because I’m half-Japanese and grew up watching the Mariners. They were the closest team to where I live. I also admire all the skill he has since he isn’t the biggest or strongest player in the league. Derek Jeter for sure because he is just iconic. Also, Randy Johnson because he was a lefty and so am I.”

If she has the bat control of Ichiro, the arm of Randy Johnson, and the calm eyes of Derek Jeter, she might really go places.
