Billie Jean King was born November 22, 1943 in Long Beach, California. Billie Jean began playing tennis at an early age and quickly became one of the best in the world, following her first Wimbledon double’s title in 1962. She would go on to win 20 Wimbledon titles and fight for equal pay for the women title.
Between 1961 and 1979, Billie Jean King won a record 20 Wimbledon titles, including the singles in 1966–8, 1972–3, and 1975. She also won 13 US titles (including four singles), four French titles (one singles), and two Australian titles (one singles).
Off the court, Billie Jean King fought for equal prize money for men and women and in 1971 became the first female athlete to win over $100,000. This campaign for equality is most notably remembered by her 1973 “Battle of the Sexes” match against 55-year-old tennis champ Bobby Riggs, who claimed the women’s game to be inferior. The match drew considerable publicity and before a worldwide television audience of some 50 million, King beat Riggs 6-4, 6-3, 6-3.
In 1974, Billie Jean King became the first president of the Women’s Tennis Association. She headed up the first professional women’s tour, the Virginia Slims, in the 1970s. She was elected to the International Tennis Hall of Fame in 1987 and served as captain of the United States Fed Cup team in the 1990s.
Carlos Beltrán is a Puerto Rican professional baseball outfielder for the St. Louis Cardinals of Major League Baseball (MLB). He has also played in MLB for the Kansas City Royals, Houston Astros, New York Mets, and San Francisco Giants.
Beltrán was the American League Rookie of the Year in 1999. He has been named to seven MLB All-Star Games, and has won three Gold Glove Awards and two Silver Slugger Awards. Beltrán is a member of the 30–30 club, as he has hit 30 home runs and stolen 30 bases in the same season.

He leads several offensive categories during this month, including slugging percentage, runs scored in a single season and at bats per home run-ratio.

He has broken the 1.000 OPS mark in four different playoff series. Beltrán also has a 100% stolen base percentage during this phase of the tournament, which are the most stolen bases without being caught.
