If you don’t know Monica Abbott by name yet, you probably know her by legend alone. Earlier this year, Abbott, a 6'3 pitcher for the National Pro Fastpitch Scrapyard Dawgs, became the first female athlete to sign a million-dollar contract from an American professional sports franchise.  Of course, it’s only possible because Abbott is good, REALLY GOOD; the best, actually.  In 2012, she set a new NPF record with a 77-mile-per-hour pitch.  When you compare that to a Major League Baseball fast ball, it's equivalent to 107mph.  You wouldn’t want to get in her way.
