1 quote found searching on Ria Cortesio

Ball, strike, safe, out, foul, fair doesn't change whether the umpire is tall or short, male or female, brown-eyed or blue-eyed. It never comes up in my mind during the game. I'm out there doing the same job that my partner is. We're doing the same thing that every other crew in the league is. The players are up there with their own agendas. They're trying to get to the big leagues just like we are. They care more about 'What's this guy going to throw me on a 1-2 pitch.' They hate me just like they hate every other umpire.

On being the only female umpire in professional baseball
