SEATTLE — For decades, Major League Baseball was considered an old boys’ club — a sport dominated by men at every position, right down to the reporters covering the sport.
In fact, it took until the late 1970s before female journalists were even allowed into the clubhouses they were assigned to cover. Now, more women than ever are reporting on — and working for — professional baseball teams.
