I introduced Ladies Links last month in which I highlight and provide links to outstanding women baseball writers. Why Ladies Links? Because there are terrific women baseball writers on the interwebs who love watching and listening to and writing about baseball and have insightful and interesting things to say. Giving them a little more attention is a good thing.
Episode 2 features:
