You Mean There's Another Kind of Baseball?
Indeed, there is.
Back in the frigid days of winter, I printed out the NAWBL schedule. That's the North American Women's Baseball League, for those not in the know. Don't worry, you aren't alone. The sport does such a huge injustice to the women who love it and play it hard, it's a wonder they have a half-way decent park to play in.
Anyway, I'm adding "take as much video of these women playing" to my list of summer projects. I'm not sure how I'm going to fit this in with my on-going geneology research and painting projects, but I'm willing to try. The first game I can catch is June 13th* (possibly one over the previous weekend, but I don't know for sure), Ravens vs. Seahawks. My ultimate goal is to create a modest little movie with the footage and send it to the powers-that-be and ask them (who ever they are) to do something to advance this. Oh yeah, the other goal is to watch the women kick ass on the field.
*Not sure if this date is going to hold, as I've recently gone to the site and discovered that the try-outs were pushed back. This could have an impact on the schedule. They've removed all the dates they had up for 2006 so they could post this announcement.
