    Wow, she is tiny. I wonder how bad they got beat by the real Giants.

    Looks like a male catcher. Anybody know if that was typical? Maybe it wouldn't be appropriate for the ladies to squat? Or were they playing a male team?

    Well, the catcher is one of the NY Giants catchers. I suspect this was some sort of exhibition game which is why I said I wondered how bad they got beat by the real Giants.
