Reynolds asked Gajownik how far she believes women have come in professional sports.
Gajownik responded by saying that she is quite impressed by the strides women have made not just in baseball, but other sports as well.
She says that there are more opportunities for women to take part in baseball and that more and more women are making a positive impact on the game.
Gajownik is impressed by the number of women who have gained traction in the game and are making positive changes.
She listed several women who are impactful figures in the game today and says that the important thing is that these women are not taking on menial tasks.
Instead, they are taking on some very important roles and are quickly rising through the ranks of Major League Baseball.
