Bud Selig hopes to see women play Major League Baseball someday
Outgoing MLB commissioner Bud Selig said he was "captivated" by Mo'ne Davis' performance in the Little League World Series, and added that he hopes to see a female play in the majors during his lifetime, ESPN.com reported Friday night.
"Someday, I hope in my lifetime, there's a woman in the big leagues," Selig said. "I'd be very, very happy."
The 13-year-old Davis was the first female to throw a shutout at the LLWS.
On Thursday's SI Now, Sports Illustrated senior writer Tom Verducci discusses the skills of Mo'ne Davis and if a woman could ever play in Major League Baseball.
