All-woman broadcast crew to call Rays-Orioles game
Melanie Newman, who's the Orioles' radio play-by-play announcer, will work with MLB.com's Sarah Langs in the booth. Alanna Rizzo, Heidi Watney, and Lauren Gardner will also take part in the historic broadcast.
"My entire career, especially coming up through the minor leagues, I was the first woman at every single stop," Newman said, according to ESPN. "I couldn't help but think in the back of my head, 'That's great, but let's keep going. Let's move past being the first, and just make this more of a normal occasion that's coming around where we're not qualifying people based on their gender."
The contest starts at 7 p.m ET on YouTube.
