Women’s baseball building interest worldwide

If there was one clear message that emerged from the recently completed Women’s Baseball World Cup in Viera, Fla., it’s that a majority of girls who play baseball eventually want to become women who play baseball. Worldwide, efforts are being made to clear paths for that to happen. But there is still a long way to go, and a lot has to happen, both financially and otherwise. Lots of girls grow up playing baseball, sometimes with boys, sometimes with other all-girl teams. But when they’re older, about to start high school or college, they switch over to softball — not because they necessarily want to, but because that is what’s available.
