Monica Abbott is breaking the mold in the best way. In case you missed it, she just signed a record $1 million dollar contract with Houston's Scrap Yard Dawgs.
It's so easy to be excited for this gold medalist not only because she's an incredible athlete, but because she's carrying a message for a new generation of young softball players that's worth your attention.
Her story is one to share with your team, your coach, and your daughter. Watch here.
Without further delay I give you Ms. Abbott, the first pitcher to pitch a perfect game in the Olympics, three time National Pro Fastpitch league champion, and 77 miles-per-hour pitch record holder. If this short film doesn't inspire you, I don't know what will.
