All-girls baseball team aims for World Series and beyond -Posted: Sunday, February 20, 2011 10:29 pm | Updated: 1:20 am, Mon Feb 21, 2011 By Sarah Higgins –  Mywesttexas.com: Top Stories

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.

‘The girls love to play baseball,’ McCrackin said. ‘They don’t want someone to throw them the ball slower or for the field to be smaller…’

Diamonds in the rough: Christian Heritage girls enjoy playing time on baseball team | Standard-Examiner

RIVERDALE — They don’t receive a lot of hype and would probably prefer to keep it low key, but the Christian Heritage Crusaders have more than a few guys playing baseball this season. The Crusaders are enjoying a unique situation with two girls that are playing this year on the boys baseball team.

Brie Olds and Emily Burns played baseball when they were younger and they never really thought they’d still be playing on the prep level.

The two get some playing time at different positions and even getting some at-bats during league and non-league games.

‘We would be lying in saying that we didn’t want to play,’ Burns said. ‘I played when I was younger on some baseball teams and having my uncle (Harry Short) teaching me the game and telling me about the game helped me want to play.

‘This is a different situation this year for us, because we know that we couldn’t do this (baseball) at any other school in the area, but these guys make it possible for us to play because they enjoy having us on the team and once we get things going, I am as much of a fan of this team as anyone…’

Preliminary notes from Shawna Macurio, Principal, North American Liberty Belles:

There are 6 of us from the States and Canada going (5 of our core Belles players and a gal from the D.C. Thunder). We will combine with 6 gals from the Long Zhu school in Shenzhen, which is next to Hong Kong in mainland China. They play both fastpitch and baseball and have been training almost everyday for the past 2 years. We will have 2 of our coaches there (Rocky Ostrom and Philipe Yan), and Long Zhu will also have 2 coaches there.

I heard there will be 7 teams there counting us. There will be 2 from Korea this year…
