Staten Island FerryHawks’ Kelsie Whitmore first woman to start Atlantic League game

Kelsie Whitmore played left field and batted ninth for the Staten Island FerryHawks on Sunday, becoming the first woman to start a game in the Atlantic League and one of the first to do so in a league connected to Major League Baseball.

The 23-year-old Whitmore cracked manager Edgardo Alfonzo’s lineup for the FerryHawks’ game at the Gastonia Honey Hunters.

Whitmore, a right-handed hitter, went 0-for-2. She struck out in her first at-bat, was hit by a pitch in the second—she hustled toward first base after being struck in the arm by a breaking pitch—and flied out to right in her third time up. She was then pulled for a pinch-hitter in a 10-5 loss.

Flawless in the field, Whitmore caught a couple of flyballs hit in her direction.
