It’s a long-overdue field of dreams. On Monday, 70-year-old Gwen McLoughlin, served as the bat girl for the New York Yankees, 60 years after she was rejected when she wrote a letter to the team as a 10-year-old asking for that chance.
In 1961, McLoughlin received a response from then-general manager Roy Hamey: “I am sure you can understand that in a game dominated by men, a young lady such as yourself would feel out of place in a dugout.” Fast forward six decades and McLoughlin’s daughter re-sent the letter.
This time, current general manager Brian Cashman had a different response saying he wanted to bring her “childhood dream to life” and “prove, obviously, how times have changed.”
What’s something you dreamed of doing as a 10-year-old that you still wish could come true?
