Carolyn King

Carolyn King

Carolyn King is one of the first girls ever to play Little League Baseball, and was the centerpiece in a landmark battle-of-the-sexes lawsuit in 1974. In 1973, Carolyn tried out for a spot in the Ypsilanti American Little League in Ypsilanti, Mich., despite the fact that Little League had a rule that specifically prohibited girls from trying out. The league president allowed her to try out anyway, and the manager of the Orioles selected Carolyn for his team. Wikipedia*
