Female Knuckleballer gets drafted in Japanese pro league

Schoolgirl Eri Yoshida was drafted for a new Japanese independent league that debuts in April. 

Those bus rides won’t quite be the same now.

Yoshida says that Tim Wakefield is her hero.  She is a sidearm knuckleball pitcher and eventually wishes to play in a higher league.
