Not sure where else to put this and searches for either part of her name turned up nothing, so...

Diamilette Quiles made history by becoming the first woman to play on an all-male pro baseball team in PR, the Utuado Mountaineers. She played for PR's female national team in two World Cups and hit over .600 last season (11-18). She played 1B for both games of the team's doubleheader over the weekend, going 0-4 combined, and drew a large crowd.

She is one of only four women signed to play in men's leagues worldwide.

If this should be somewhere else, please move it, but I thought it was a really cool story and hope she does well.

Sounds like a modern day Eri Yoshida or Ila Borders
