I don't know what time of the day they play. My friend is paid and her expenses are covered. I don't know many more details, but I can find out.

I don't know how open people in areas where siestas occur would be to going to baseball games during siesta time. Siestas are usually 2-3 hours long and are used for lunch and then a period of rest. I know this, because my ex-husband is from Mexico. Not everyone in these areas take siestas, either.
The focus of a U.S. pro women's league needs to stay in the U.S. a pro women's league isn't impossible. It takes planning, money, and marketing... like anything else.
I agree with the idea of upgrading fields, whether they be high school, collegiate, or other fields. They don't have to be fancy... just functional with really good fields. I've played on some that are great fields with bleacher-type seating built into grassy hills surrounding the fields and with men's and women's bathrooms and a small concession area. There aren't locker room facilities. Central Michigan University has this type of facility, and I played in one in Denver. Even though they are pretty basic, they are very nice and are functional. If money is that much of an issue, the facilities could be basic in the beginning and could grow with demand. It's not necessary to build an expensive stadium unless the demand is there.
