It's A Girl!!!!
Eri Yoshida is a 5' 1" Japanese born knuckleball pitcher who made her United States pro debut with the Chico Outlaws in 2010. That's her card from the teams' set from that year. She has moved on to a couple of different clubs in the subsequent seasons but she's still going at it. She is one of only a handful of females to play pro ball here in the States.
She has put up some decent numbers (as seen on her Baseball Reference page) at times and has a 5-10 career record. Her ERA is high but she has a fair hits per inning ratio. She walks far too many though.
A reader sent me the set and I found a couple of other familiar names in it. I'll post those cards soon.
At the risk of coming off as a perv of some sort I won't comment on Eri anymore other than to say she has a nice pitching form. But you don't see me posting six pics of Elrod Hendricks, do you?
And you know, that's not a terribly designed card. Kind of cool actually.
