What USA Baseball Women do when not Playing or Training

Only one player’s off field bio was recognized in the new release Hardball: Tamara Holmes.

Men who play baseball regularly if not professional have jobs and careers. Granted, they do not tend to wear their off field lives around their neck.

Recently, a delivery service sent a man wearing a t-shirt referencing a local baseball tournament.

He shared with me the three different leagues he participated in including two baseball and one softball.

His enthusiasm for life was so powerful.

I have read over the past 15 years about girls and women in baseball who excel academically and athletically in multiple sports.

Some are rewarded for their work in very complex professions.

Many women in our society today are earning high level degrees in all fields and making strides towards the top rewards accordingly.

If women prefer to perform at the highest levels in baseball: why is there no professional avenue if not only to subsidize their training and playing schedules not like the pay scale in men’s baseball. My understanding is that a professional baseball minor league contract while not enough to maintain an entirely private life, with other accommodations such as travel and housing provided it can allows player to not have to maintain a separate job and therefore sustain training and performance levels to validate a professional grade experience for a paying audience.

Also, it would be the gateway for women to transition from college level softball and into a similarly rigorous training mode as they develop their baseball-specific skills.

In the USA, I would hazard a guess the entire budget for a women’s minor league development program would be a rounding error within the entitle MLB budget:

a natural progression from USA Baseball’s current programming also funded by MLB Baseball.
