Woman Pitches Batting Practice For The Cleveland Indians [VIDEO]

Justine Siegal pitched batting practice at the Cleveland Indians' spring training facility in Goodyear, Arizona, marking the first time a woman has ever performed this task.

She will pitch batting practice again today, this time for the Oakland A's.

This isn't the first time the 36-year-old has been a baseball gender pioneer -- in 2009 Siegal became the first woman to coach first base for a men's professional team when she did so for the Broxton Rox of the Canadian-American League. Read on to see her in action.

Ex-NBA Player to Get Bionic Legs [VIDEO]

A little more than a year ago, Mike Williams, who had played in the NBA for Atlanta and Sacramento, was shot eight times while breaking up a fight at an Atlanta night club.

When he awoke from a coma, the 6'-8' giant was partially paralyzed from his waist down.

Enter Dan Ivankovich, who had played high-school basketball with Williams 30 years earlier, and who had become an orthopedic surgeon.

Ivankovich hopes to be able to fit Williams with a pair of computer-controlled robotic legs which could potentially work well enough to have the two old friends playing each other in one-on-one.

The bionic legs have been successful on smaller people and Ivankovich believes if he can get them to work for a man who's basketball nickname was "Massive Mike Williams", they could work for anybody. Read on to see their tale.

Florida Woman *LOVES* Her Thin Mints

I won't lie. I've got a thing for Girl Scout cookies. Put a box of Tagalongs in front of me and I'll make them disappear in about two minutes flat. Put another box of them in front of me and I will curse your name even as I make that second box disappear.

But I won't do that trick with any of Hersha Howard's Thin mints. Why? Because Hersha loves her Thin Mints to the point of violence.

Lance Armstrong To Retire… For Good This Time?

Say the name Lance Armstrong to someone who doesn't follow cycling and it's a good bet that they'll still know who he is.

Cycling fan or not, you have to admire the man. On top of winning a whopping seven Tour de France races, the man decided he wasn't famous enough for his endurance and went out and beat cancer. He also became world famous in a sport that isn't exactly a breeding ground for world famous-ness.

Not Too Many People Are Happy With Jay Cutler

There are quite a few opinions on Jay Cutler's knee injury during the NFC Championship game vs. the Packers on Sunday.  Even NFL players are getting involved saying he should have played.  I will give Jay this, we don't know the type of injury he has yet.  However, why was he walking around on the sidelines?  If he can walk around then in my opinion he should have at least tried a few more plays.
