Mary Stewart, 101, shares memories of being first female reporter to cover the Tribe.
“We are honored to honor you,” Norwalk Mayor Rob Duncan tells Stewart, who turned 100 Thursday.
“We were heading for the World Series; there was baseball fever.”
The 1934 Norwalk HS graduate was the first female reporter to cover the Cleveland Indians in 1948.
The extremely social and friendly woman enjoyed spending time with family and friends.
Mary Stewart will be right in front of her TV on Tuesday night when the Indians host the Chicago Cubs for Game 1 of the World Series.
This 1934 Norwalk High grad became “the first woman to cover a big league game” as a Cleveland newspaper reporter in 1948.
