I feel compelled to mention that on September 22nd pioneer sportswriter Mary Garber died at the age of 92.
Her bravery inspires me everyday. When I think it's tough, I think of her and her courage.
The Association of Women in Sports Media has honored her with a scholarship in her name. Girls who come after me and fifty years from now will still be feeling her influence and this scholarship ensures that.
Thank you for all you did, Slugger.
