SAN PABLO -- As the buzzer sounds to announce the substitution, a handful of Mission College basketball supporters chant: "Gabbi! Gabbi! Gabbi!"
Most of the 50 or so onlookers in the dingy, yellow-tinted gym briefly look up from their chili-cheese nachos and smartphones, and then back down. A few whisper and point at No. 42, marveling at her size.
It was the debut of Gabrielle Ludwig, and at 6 feet 8, 220 pounds, with tattoos on her arms and legs, she stands out in the Contra Costa College gym. At 50, the Fremont resident is about three decades older than her Santa Clara community college teammates and opponents -- and much taller.
What many at the 19th annual Comet Classic did not know was Ludwig had only been a woman since July, when she had a sex change operation. They didn't know the long path traveled by the father and Desert Storm veteran, and how she may be the first transsexual athlete to play college sports as both genders.

If he has a y chromosome, he is a fraud. To think people get excited by stuff like this. We are a nation of morons with a moron of a leader.
I always wondered what happened to Gheorghe Muresan. Now I know.
At least he/she/it isn’t a felon which places he/she/it well above the typical pro basketball player.
I hope the other teams refuse to play
White He/Shes Can’t Jump
Having cosmetic surgery does not affect one’s sex. Calling this person a woman is pure propaganda.
Well, there’s no such thing as a transexual woman, there’s just male and female.
Bodily mutiliation and cross-dressing has no effect on the DNA of every cell in the body.
6 feet 8, 220 pounds and feels like a woman?
What a depressing article. But go and look at the video if you really want to be depressed...
“gender was determined by birth certificate.”
“On Nov. 30, an Alameda County Superior Court judge declared Gabrielle Monika Ludwig a woman and ordered her a new female birth certificate.”
Isn’t this a bit like re-writing the official history and then burying the actual historical records?
A WNBA draftee? He’s bleeping 50. He’ll have a heart attack trying to run the floor with the girls from UCONN and TENN.
he;s a man plain and simple , no matter how many stockings he wears.
He already played for a previous college. How much eligibility does the NCAA allow?
That’s a good question, I have no idea.
The man is a 50 year old queen. I’m guessing the average girl on an other team is looking forward to hip-checking this freak into the bleachers.
Hope you’re happy, feministas! Watch as more men push women out of sports and employment due to sicko crossdressing and mutiliation.
So glad I don’t have daughters.
Holy bleep, he got a Do-Over on eligibility!!!!! Can this be used to get a conviction thrown out because a murderer was convicted as a man?
Perfectly stated. Nothing more to add.
And I thought Jamie Farr looked bad in drag...!
Gabbi is just a big ugly middle-aged man with her penis chopped off. She was born a man, and she’ll die a horribly mutilated psychotic man.
(I keep looking up for the big asteroid. It’s not nice to fool Mother Nature. God will not be mocked...for long.)
Allowing this mutilated and severely mentally disordered individual to play on a womans team is absurd and shows the complete lack of reality and standards that is destroying our country.
Next, they can officially declare the moon to be made of green cheese.
Won’t make that so, either.
“This makes me glad that the world is going to end soon.”
5 Days, 7 hours and 18 minutes. CST
I’m a 55-year-old man who still runs, three times a week, at an 8-minute pace on a good day. At “only” 6’1” and 195#, I think not too many of the actual girls would mess with me physically on the court. (Leaving b-ball skill out of the equation, and I promise you, God left them out of my equation.)
If “Gabbi” is in any kind of shape and can shoot at all, “he’ll” be a force to reckon with just from “his” size and weight.
Jeez, that thing has a face like Odo from Star Trek Deep Space 9.
It is amusing, however, that despite his unfair size advantage it appears he sucks at basketball.
It just takes longer to recover than it used to.
“Next, they can officially declare the moon to be made of green cheese.
Wont make that so, either.”
And the powers that be, by executive order, will make it official that there is something wrong with YOU if you don’t believe it.
Wait a minute, we’re already seeing that, aren’t we?
Don’t look: it’s Liam Neeson with a ponytail.
Take a look at the video - (s)he plays flat-footed and doesn't appear to be either quick or coordinated. Runs on her heels, not toes. Doesn't leave the ground more than an inch or so when jumping (not that (s)he needs to). At 6'8", (s)he is running at a bit of deficit joint-wise - I bet those knees and ankles ache. I give her half a season before she injures out.
Now he officially plays like a girl.
Other than the co-ordination part, she looks sort of like a brunette Larry Bird; and about as good looking.
I heard that about recovery time. I really “listen” to my legs now, and the first sign of a pull, I ease up. No more “running through a little heat.” Downtime is hard, and takes longer in between.
To me, it’s a sports freak show, all the sadder because the uber-PC students “play along” with the PC mindmeld gag, and don’t even know it’s a gag.
Next, we’ll hear about the first trannie Army general, some bulldyke he/she with a “long-time life partner” and adopted Korean children.
Michael Jackson is laughing. It’s all normal now.
Bit asteroid. Looking up.
Court order notwithstanding, genetically his sex is and will always be male no matter what mutilating surgeries are performed, hormones ingested and clothing worn...
All of the above is cosmetic, for the purpose of passing himself off as something (female) he can never be...
I have to laugh at otherwise sensible people being taken in by this sort of nonsense...Like my liberal friends who marvel at the “miracle” of the “man” who gave birth...
As has been said, if he carries a “Y” chromosome, he is male...Period...
My sympathies to the young women who must now compete, share the court, and the locker room/showers with a man masquerading as one of them...
The mental illness continues...
He should be playing for the St. Elizabeths insane asylum team.
Anybody that ugly that thinks it’s a girl is defiinitely missing some screws.
"Tran-ny! .. Tran-ny! .. Tran-ny!"
Will they show her picture on the Jumbo-Tran?
Rumor has it Liam Neeson is going to portray her/it in the bio-pic.
And he’s a father,too. Dear Lord. I feel bad for his kids.
What a f***ed-up world we live in.
“She” is ugly as sin.
