Woman who played professional baseball finds new career fighting fires in Oregon

She has an area in the National Baseball Hall of Fame and has been interviewed by some of the greats, but now Ila Borders is saving lives and serving the community of Cornelius.
[...]
The trajectory of her life then changed with a pair of tragic events. Borders lost her grandmother to a drowning and lost her partner to a drunken driver.

She battled serious depression, but found a new life in Oregon.

Borders is now 43 and married again. She is in her third year as lieutenant and paramedic for the Cornelius Fire Department.

This headline would have been better if they had replaced "fires in Oregon" with "criminals at night while dressed like a bat."

My brother came back from America this winter with a new softball bat that claims to be "US Military Grade". If you guys are fighting your wars armed with softball bats that makes US military dominance over the globe all the more impressive.
