You'd think that professional baseball players wouldn't be afraid to face a girl. You'd be wrong though. Of course, the girl in question, Jennie Finch, is a force to be reckoned with.
Finch is a former softball player who pitched for the Chicago Bandits and the US National softball team. In 2004, she and her team won a gold medal at the Olympics and then went on to win a silver at the 2008 Games.
After Finch retired from softball, she signed on as a cohost of "This Week in Baseball." The show included the "Jennie Challenge" where Finch would pitch to MLB players.
And often, she would strike them out. This happened often enough that some refused to go up against her. As Cal Ripken Jr. Said, "Many feel it could be embarrassing."
The pitcher's mound in softball is closer so Finch's pitches are the equivalent of 98 mph. Finch also said that she will throw softball pitches that the players have never seen before so it surprises them.
