  World of Work magazine: No. 56 - Women in sports: How level is the playing field? - Department of Communication   (Site not responding. Last check: )
A survey of sports editors and deputy editors from 285 newspapers in the south-eastern United States in 2003 found that 25 per cent of the editors still believe women are naturally less athletic than men.
Nearly 90 per cent were confident that the gender balance in their newspapers' sports sections reflected reader interests in male over female sports and roughly 45 per cent said they believed women have little or no interest in sports.
Involvement in sports for women and men teaches critical lessons on discipline, goal setting, communication and work ethics that are widely transferable and often translate into successful careers down the line.

 cars - Nolan Ryan
This record was made even more impressive by the fact that he achieved it in the first year of the designated hitter in the American League; if AL pitchers had still been hitting, Ryan would almost certainly have had over 400 strikeouts that season.

The 46-year-old Ryan – a rancher in the offseason – promptly subdued the 26-year-old Ventura in a headlock with his left arm, pummelling Ventura's head with his right fist six times before catcher Ivan Rodriguez was able to pull Ventura away from Ryan.
