First Million Dollar Contract for Woman in U.S Team Sports
Monica Abbot just became the first woman in U.S Team sports history to receive a million dollar or more contract.
I had no idea that before this moment that no woman on a professional sports team has had a contract bigger then a million dollars? So crazy when you see multi million dollar contracts and in a matter of time will probably be a billion dollar contract somewhere but no doubt it will be for a male athlete.
I think this is a proud moment for women and for fast pitch softball. I just am amazed that the first million dollar contract for baseball was back in 1979... it's taken us 37 years to get to a woman in softball having one. Kind of sad but at least it's happening and they are getting paid.
According to aplus.com, Monica signed a six-year contract with the Scrap Yard Dawgs.
