Silvia Lind, the highest-ranking Hispanic woman in a management position at Major League Baseball, has filed a discrimination lawsuit:

Lind, the league’s director of baseball initiatives in its Office of the Commissioner, names as defendants the league, commissioner Bud Selig and Hall of Famer Frank Robinson, who supervised her . . . The lawsuit says Lind works in an industry dominated by white men and has been passed over for promotions and underpaid since 1995.

She’s a Fordham Law graduate who has worked for MLB ever since she graduated.
