Our guest this week is @Monica Abbott! Also known as “the million-dollar arm”, Monica is one of the best female pitchers of all time! She's a professional softball player, and the first woman in the history of US team sports to have ever signed a million-dollar contract!
She’s played for the Women’s Pro Softball League, and the National Japan Softball League, she’s won two silver Olympic medals for Team USA, 17 different championship titles, and multiple Most Valuable Player awards.
In 2016, Monica signed a landmark $1 million contract with the Scrap Yard Dawgs of the National Pro Fastpitch League, the first-ever million dollar deal for a woman playing on a team sport in the United States. In doing so, she opened the door for young softball players interested in making a career in professional softball, and opened many doors for others across the landscape of women’s professional sports.
