Tricia Whitaker denied opportunity to appear on MLB’s historic all-women broadcast by Bally Sports

Tonight’s Rays game at Tropicana Field will be an historic first: an all-women broadcast team will anchor every aspect of coverage, in an MLB produced game to be broadcast on YouTube.

The milestone for the sport has been widely lauded, and the women involved rightfully praised for their accomplishments.

Melanie Newman, Sarah Langs, Alanna Rizzo, Heidi Watney and Lauren Gardner spoke to @LesterHoltNBC ahead of their history-making broadcast of the Baltimore Orioles-Tampa Bay Rays game.

It will be the first time in MLB history where the broadcasters for a game are all women.
