Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg will be the site of baseball history Tuesday.
YouTube will use the first all-female broadcast crew for a Major League Baseball game, between the Tampa Bay Rays and Baltimore Orioles.
The team includes Orioles’ radio play-by-play announcer Melanie Newman and MLB.com writer Sarah Langs in the booth.
Alanna Rizzo is the on-field reporter, while Heidi Watney and Lauren Gardner will handle the pregame and postgame shows.
“It can’t help but feel different,” Rizzo told the New York Times. “I’ve always had a male play-by-play voice in my ear during every game I’ve ever done.”
