The Girl That Struck Out Ruth and Gehrig

Jackie Mitchell, "the girl who struck out Babe Ruth. The 17-year old Jackie signed a contract to be a pitcher for the Chattanooga Lookouts men's Baseball team. The Lookouts are a minor league class AA farm team in the New York Yankees organization.

On April 2, 1931 the New York Yankees stopped in Chattanooga for an exhibition game on their way home from spring training. Jackie came into the game in the middle of the first inning and proceeded to strike out Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig back to back! The story immediately made national headlines. A few days later, Baseball Commissioner Landis voided Mitchell's contract, claiming that baseball was "too strenuous" for a woman.
