Hillary Clinton pens a farewell to The Toast.

“Sonoma could be the first team in over 60 years to feature multiple women at the same time. When the Stompers take the field on Friday, Kelsie Whitmore, a 17-year-old outfielder/pitcher, and Stacy Piagno, a 25-year-old pitcher/infielder, will be in their starting lineup.”
