Late in the evening as the event came to a close and security prepared to storm the field, we were able to witness something magical. New Fox Sports Reporter Megan Olivi put her hair in a sock bun and then put on a clinic at the plate. Somehow she did it all in high heeled sneakers too. Whispers around the cage said she use to play softball competitively, others said she played semi-pro ball around the country under an assumed name.
The best part of that post is when the SB Nation writer talks about being credentialed for Padres media day. That’s really awesome. The Cubs and White Sox would NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER in a million years give insider access like that to a sports blog. So in that sense San Diego beats Chicago. Just like in ’84 when Steve Garvey, Eric Show, Tim Flannery and company dismissed Leon Durham, Rick Sutcliffe et al.
