FAIRBANKS, Alaska - The Panners winning wasn't the biggest story though at Growden Park.
In fact, it was another player on the Saints that became a fan favorite.​
That was Luisa Gauci, who is breaking the barrier playing baseball which is normally dominated by men.​
Gauci played in the game last night, getting a hit and turning a double play against the Panners.​
She signed autographs for young girls who were amazed to see Gauci.​
Most of them calling her an inspiration, others saying that they prefer baseball over softball.​
The incoming freshman for Menlo College is viewed as a role model for other girls who want to play baseball.​
Gauci, who is from Australia, spoke about playing the sport she loves.​
"I love coming to the field every single day, it's actually amazing. I can't explain to you how amazing it is and like I always get told to play softball. my mum made this decision for me, she thought baseball and softball were the same sport. So she signed me up for this a long time ago and the first couple weeks I had no idea I was the only girl. Then as I got older, I realized that I was the only girl. I wouldn't trade it for the whole world. I met some amazing guys, I get to travel the world. So I absolutely love it. Every single day cause I'm obsessed," said Gauci.
