Baseball: First female player to be hired and serve on a MLB baseball team. [The popularity of...

...Major League Baseball (MLB) has been in decline for decades.  This challenge is meant to help reverse that trend by giving women and girls a very strong reason to come and see a baseball game.  To give girls female role models to emulate and admire.  To rid baseball of its "boys only club" image and mentality.  And since baseball isn't a hard-hitting contact sport (like football), there really isn't a good reason why women cannot compete on equal footing as men in the sport.  Running speed, dexterity, and hand-eye coordination have a far larger importance for the game than brute strength.]

1) Hit a home run.

2) Hit a grand slam.
