Betty Bushman became one of the first women to broadcast a Major League Baseball game when she joined the radio crew for the Kansas City A’s in 1964.

Betty Bushman, then known as Betty Caywood, was a model and TV weather forecaster in Chicago, who was hired by notorious Kansas City A’s owner Charles Finley towards the end of the 1964 season to join the radio broadcasting crew for the team. Finley hoped Bushman would help attract more female fans. Bushman provided color commentary for the A’s the last 15 games of 1964 with Monte Moore and George Bryson doing play-by-play. Finley did not renew her contract after that season.

Bushman encountered sexism when the sports writers at Fenway Park would not allow her to eat in their dining room. She told The St. Joseph News-Press in December 1964, “I think we accomplished what we set out to do, but I know we’d have done much better with more time.”
