    Though her name and story may not be familiar to all, the sports world lost a beloved figure and a true trailblazer last week when Edith Houghton passed away at age 100.

    Just to give you a little perspective on how unique and remarkable this wonderful lady was, consider that by age 10 she was already chasing her baseball dreams as the starting shortstop for an all-girls professional team known as the Philadelphia Bobbies. This was in 1922, well before the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League that was highlighted in the filmA League Of Their Own was formed during World War II.
