Though an all-girls baseball team suffered two losses at this weekend’s Midland Winter Blast tournament, each player left with a bigger, united dream still intact. Each wants to be the first female to make it to the big leagues.

The Dream Team, composed of 11 girls between the ages of 12 and 13 from across the U.S., defeated a boys team from Hobbs by 10-2 on Saturday, and subsequently lost 7-8 to the Diamond Kings from Odessa. On Sunday, the team lost 0-2 in the last inning on two RBIs after intentionally walking a player from Crossfire Baseball of Amarillo.

The team was formed after the girls had a chance to play together in a tournament last summer and has already made history by being the first all-girls baseball team to be invited to the USSSA World Series baseball tournament in July. Assistant coach Randall McCrackin said the team’s ultimate goal this year is to qualify for the USSSA Elite World Series, which consists of the top 32 baseball teams of each age group in the U.S.
