I found this on BBC.com (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/in_pictures/5204974.stm)...

Effa Manley shatters tradition by becoming the first woman inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. She co-owned the Newark Eagles and fought for civil rights.

I thought this was very interesting, does anyone know much about her?
