16-Year-Old French Phenom Melissa Mayeux Notches Base Hit At Elite European Camp

Earlier this summer, Melissa Mayeux made international headlines when she became the first woman to be added to MLB's international registration list. The 16-year-old is a shortstop on France's U18 junior national team, and MLB's director of international game development, Mike McClellan,, who has been watching her play for the past two years, called her "fearless" and a "legitimate shortstop who makes all the plays."

So, yeah, she's pretty good.

Mayeux is currently training at MLB's Elite Development Camp in the Netherlands, where she is the first woman EVER to participate. And during her debut game on Thursday, she made women everywhere proud when she hit a single to center field.

Mayeux has previously stated her goals are to make the 2017 French team for the World Baseball Classic and to ultimately one day play in America. It looks like she's well on her way to achieving those dreams.
