    From http://baseballindia.net/...

    Here's more info for girls and parents and organizers...

    You can sign up at Little League; Cal Ripken or Babe Ruth; Protect our Nations’ Youth (PONY); if you are already skilled enough — from playing Baseball or Softball — you have the opportunity to try out for American Legion Baseball.

    If you have a local Recreation & Park league — or one of the other community organizations such as Boys & Girls Club or Police Activities League (PAL); YMCA or JCC: you have every right and opportunity to sign up for BASEBALL.

    NO PERSON OR ORGANIZATION CAN PREVENT YOU FROM SIGNING UP FOR AND PLAYING HARDBALL BASEBALL IN ANY COMMUNITY LEAGUE THAT EITHER RECEIVES PUBLIC FUNDING OR PLAYS ON PUBLIC PROPERTY.*

    No matter what you are told by the leagues and community organizations: you don’t have to play Softball if prefer Baseball:

    it is not only the law for all citizens and residents of the United States of America - it may just be the right activity for you to reach for great things in life!

    If you have any questions about this please consider visiting the Women’s Sports Foundation web site to discover your rights and contact them direct for any support you may need.

    (*Originally, “Public funding” would mean Federal funding. But most public organizations and facilities receive monies from that source, either indirect or directly through more local organizations — “follow the money,” as they say.)

    Also, in Middle and High School, PUBLIC OR PRIVATE, you always have the option of trying out — but making the team is at the discretion of the coach and can be hard to verify if they were biased in their decision to allow you to make the cut. But, there are girls who not only try out but make the team and play in the regular season games, some of whom are the team’s best competitive performers. if you have any questions about this you can contact your state or local School Association representatives direct.
