It had been decades since the color barrier had been broken in baseball, but only recently did someone try to break the gender barrier. Susan Mitchell took to the field of her first major league game last week. Initially, it was a proud moment for women everywhere; however, the world was shocked to learn that Susan was actually a man! Several years earlier in a freak experiment, the mind of a man was placed inside of her body. There was much debate about whether or not the gender barrier had been broken. Susan spoke up to state that, yes, it had. She felt like a woman and was a woman where it counted!
