For all the great girls and women out there who love to play baseball, don’t give it up. You don’t have to play softball if you prefer baseball.
Did you know that the International Baseball Federation has announced a bid to include women’s baseball in the 2016 Olympics? (Story here.) Women’s baseball isn’t just Madonna-Rosie O’Donnell-Geena Davis in quaint “athletic” skirts. The American Women’s Baseball Federation has a professional team (here).
Here are some other cool links that may encourage baseball-loving girls:
