“Tinker to Evers to Chance” has nothing on SportsCenter’s Double Play of Women Anchors

More than a century ago this month (September 3, 1902), Cubs infielders Joe Tnker, Johnny Evers and Frank Chance began carving their way into baseball lexicon by turning their first double play. At noon ET today, ESPN entered a “Storm & Cohn to McKendry & Steele” play into its SportsCenter history book when the 9 a.m. co-hosts turned their three-hour SportsCenter over to their 12 p.m. colleagues. “Never in my 18 years here have there been back-to-back sets of women anchors hosting SportsCenter,” Linda Cohn said as she and Hannah Storm gave way to Chris McKendry and Sage Steele. “Well done, by us!” Storm said with a laugh, giving props to the quartet of women sportscasters.
