Baseball Doesn't Need Wonder Woman

May 28, 1988

Former American League umpire Ron Luciano said it would set baseball back 30 years if the major leagues hired female umpire Pam Postema.

Luciano makes it sound as if the first female umpire must be superior to all her male counterparts, like some kind of Wonder Woman, in order to qualify for the job. That's like saying a person has to be a race-car driver in order to qualify for a driver's license.
