Driving down M-59 through Utica you can see Jimmy John’s Field where the United Shore Professional Baseball League is headquartered. The league was started in 2015 by sports entrepreneur Andy Appleby, but there is a woman behind the scenes who makes sure that it operates smoothly.

Meet Dana L. Schmitt, the Chief Operating Officer of the United Shore Professional Baseball League. Dana is a talented executive and attorney with more than 20 years of experience in operating entrepreneurial business ventures and in the practice of law. In her role as Chief Operating Officer of the United Shore Professional Baseball League, Dana helps to oversee all league, ballpark and team operations.

Speaking with Dana, I learned that she is incredibly humble and her passion for baseball started at a young age. I also learned she is 100 percent committed to her career. She explained the hours and the work load involved in just her day to day schedule. Listen to her interview and you will understand why she is a WCSX “Woman Who Rocks”.

In the second half of the podcast, I am always joined by Cyndy Schalter from Turning Point Macomb.

"Language is a lot like fashion," says Mary Kohn, an associate professor of English at Kansas State University who studies the intersection of language and culture.

Cyndy and I also discuss a new character for Disney that has the internet in an uproar.

Backlash against Disney casting decision

DISNEY is copping furious backlash for its decision to cast a British comedian and actor in its upcoming blockbuster Jungle Cruise. Jack Whitehall has reportedly been picked to portray Disney's first openly gay character in the film, alongside big names Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Emily Blunt.

A new movie is coming out starring Dwayne Johnson and an openly gay character who is being played by a straight man.
