Monday, November 17th — Eri Yoshida

Today I Learned…

…about Eri Yoshida, a 16-year-old Japanese schoolgirl who was just drafted by a professional baseball team in a new independent league in Japan.  She throws a sidearm knuckleball (which must be murder to try to hit) and hopes to emulate current Red Sox pitcher Tim Wakefield.

She didn’t allow a hit in an inning against male batters earlier this month in a tryout, which led her to be one of 33 players picked in the draft.
