Jessica Mendoza Endures Sexism as MLB's First Woman Color Commentator (VIDEO)

Personally, I don't see what the big deal is.

For one thing, if it wasn't for social media you wouldn't be hearing about "rampant" sexism against Ms. Mendoza. Women have been making their way into the top ranks of sports journalism for awhile, and mainstream media hacks are bending over backwards for more "diversity."

Yeah, the Twitter abuse is reprehensible, but then, that's the name of the game nowadays. You know what they say: "If you can't stand the heat..."

In any case, at the Atlantic, "Breaking Into Baseball’s Ultimate Boys’ Club":
Jessica Mendoza, a former athlete and MLB’s first female TV analyst, brings a player’s sensibility to her job. But she’s still subject to the routine abuse directed at women in sports journalism.
