Now Playing Tracks

On this day in 1931, 17-year-old baseball player Jackie Mitchell, who was the second woman to play in the all-male minor leagues and one of the first woman pitchers in professional baseball, famously struck out Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig in an exhibition game against the New York Yankees.

A few days later, baseball commissioner Kennesaw Mountain Landis voided Mitchell’s contract, declaring women unfit to play baseball as the game was “too strenuous.”

Here she is with Ruth and Gehrig.

Owls confirmed to be the creepiest birds ever. LOOK AT THE FUCKING THINGS. If you fail to notice the one on the left fucking SWALLOWING a rat, then you have the dude singing some satanic chant or something next to him, and then you have those two other fucking psychos synchronized to make you feel creeped the fuck out with their soulless dance of FUCKING DOOM.
