Claire Eccles has pitched her way into the history books. The Victoria Harbourcats knuckleballer is the first woman to play in the West Coast League, a collegiate summer baseball league based in Canada.

Let’s see what Twitter was saying about Eccles outstanding accomplishment.


Not too shabby. A left-hander and a knuckleballer to boot. There have been some knuckleball pitchers in Major League Baseball, most notable Phil Niekro and Tim Wakefield. But none of them have been left-handed. Eccles has made one appearance and pitched two innings giving up one hit and two runs. You can find out more about Eccles and the Harbourcats right here on the West Coast League website.
