Who's the Boss? It seems Alyssa Milano is when it comes to cornering the sports fashion apparel market for women.
After launching her "Touch" line of clothing and jewelry, Saturday she opened a boutique store at the Metsâ€™ Citi Field. Interviewed before todayâ€™s game, Milano said that MLB.comâ€™s At Bat 2009 is â€śthe greatest invention ever,â€ť due to the ability to listen to Gameday Audio.
As for pitching the clothing line, she said that it wasnâ€™t easy.
â€śIt was a very intimidating to actually come in and meet with MLB,â€ť she said. â€śThese 10 guys in suits, all over 50, and Iâ€™m trying to pitch a womenâ€™s clothing line?â€ť
Like pitching fashion clothing to Marge Schott would have been any easier.
