ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — There was history in the broadcast booth at Tropicana Field.

It was her story, too.

Because for the first time in Major League Baseball history, an all-female announcing crew called a game as the Tampa Bay Rays played the Baltimore Orioles. The YouTube broadcast featured Melanie Newman on play-by-play with Sarah Langs as the analyst.

Alanna Rizzo was the on-field reporter, and Heidi Watney and Lauren Gardner hosted the pregame and postgame coverage.
