  • Would you support it

    If a womans baseball league started, would you go to games? Professional womans softball has struggled, would baseball fare better. It's taken awhile, but the WNBA has started to do better. Would MLB have to help, like the NBA is doing with the WNBA?

    For sure I would, of course the majority of female players would play small ball, but I'd enjoy it definately. Now here comes probably the hard part... how do you schedule the games for "WMLB"/"AAGPBL2" if we are assuming that the female teams play where the men play also? Doubleheader for some? Hopefully that would be sorted out.

    Yeah, I believed if women played hardball it would be more fun. A true test with a baseball.

    Now, just don't form a rivalry between the New York Yankettes and the Boston Pink Sox.

        Yes, I would support women's baseball.

        That's women, not girls. In the greater Boston area, I think a women's team would do very well. When WMLB is founded, I'm sure the Red Sox organization would start a team that would do very well.

          Thats the problem, to be successful it would have to have the support of MLB. I 'm not sure if Bud and the boys would give that support.

            Hmmm...

            Since I voted in a poll that Selig was the worst thing in baseball... Let's assume, fantasize, that people come to their senses, and Selig ends up in jail. Then someone with INTEGRITY, AND A LOVE OF BASEBALL, could be in charge. I nominate a committee consisting of the Baseball Fever Mods.

                I say to hell with MLB. What have they done for women in baseball? And besides pick up great players out of a number impoverished banana republics, what have they done -- I mean really done -- over the decades to better the lives of people in the places off which they've made a ton of money? Believe me, as basketballer Yao Ming has already learned painfully, when the time comes in the not-too-distant future that professional players start arriving from China, you can bet your bottom renminbi that MLB will start learning the true meaning of "payback." In the meantime, if women want to play pro ball, they should just do it and love it. When MLP's troglodyte management begins to smell a dollar, you can be sure they'll come around. And if they don't, well, just "Play Ball!" I'll be there. To see why, please look at my post elsewhere on this site about the woman who struck out Ted Williams.

                  Sure. I used to watch alot of PGA and LPGA events. I see a difference in physical strength between the men and women but not so much in actual skills. I think watching Annika Sorenstam is just as exciting as watching Tiger Woods. It took many years for the LPGA to attain the high quality of play you see today and I imagine the same would be true for baseball.

                    Oh! Implying that the Yankees organization wouldn't? Let the rivalry begin!

                          i second, sandlot.
                          this is exactly what i was gonna post. you totally stole my thunder.

                          i would support and watch here in the san francisco bay area -- as long as the league is not the wnl or wal.
                          women's sports do not need to hang onto the shirttails of men's sports.

                          "lady bulldogs" and "lady dons" is just horrible. as is the "women's national basketball association."
                          why does pro basketball have the "nba" for men and the "wnba" for women?

                          the "w" is a subtle yet very real reminder that women are continually put second/behind/below.

                            What utter paranoia. The league is called the WNBA, because the NBA underwrites them. Unfortunately, women's pro sports cannot support themselves. Just look at the "crowds". Many high schools draw more. The average "fan" compares the women's game with the men's in ALL sports. If people would just accept the women's game for what it is, and not make these ridiculous comparisons, the women might stand a chance.

                              Hi Everyone! I'm new to Baseball Fever.

                              As a player on a women's baseball team here in South Florida, I would definitely participate in and support it. We're making arrangements to play in the Women's World Series 5 at Disney in October.

                              I'm a graphic designer and I even created a WMLB logo. If you put it next to the MLB logo, it will look like she is pitching to him. I tried to upload it, I hope I did it right.
