WCL’s First Female Pitcher Faces Pippins Tonight
When the Yakima Valley Pippins play the Victoria, B.C. HarbourCats tonight, they will be part of West Coast League history.
Eccles, a 5'8" native of Surrey, British Columbia and a Junior at the University of B.C., has made four appearances in league games in relief so far this season.
Like her predecessor Ila Borders, Eccles is proof why we love sports. It is the ultimate meritocracy. If you can throw, run, catch or hit, it matters not one's gender, size or athleticism.
