SETX Legend: Babe Zaharias

Less than one percent of professional athletes maintain name recognition a decade after they stop playing. Their great deeds fade out of the memories of all but their family and a handful of their biggest fans. Even fewer are ever acknowledged, even fleetingly, as the greatest to ever play their sport.
