About the project

The timing is right for women to have a professional Baseball League in Australia. Your donation will help us develop this League! Show your support of Women's Baseball by giving women the same opportunity to have their own professional League, right here in Australia. The Women's League will help grow the women's game by:  

·        Creating a pathway for our elite women baseballers

·        Creating a sustainable domestic league with international reach

·        Helping increase junior girls’ participation in baseball throughout Australia

Baseball Australia seeks donors from you... the community... the very people that have been wanting to see your women shine, wanting to give your women an equal platform to showcase their talent, wanting to create greater diversity in sport, and show the rest of us what we've been missing all these years. Let's show that this League is sustainable and not tokenistic. As a community, back your women and back this League!

    Good luck in your attempt to start a women's baseball league. I was 8 years old before I realized there were no women on the field. But that didn't stop me from being a lifelong fan.

  • The Davis Family

  • Katrina Nott

    Diamonds are a girls best friend - they obviously meant baseball diamonds

  • KATE COLCLOUGH

    Our women players come from many different backgrounds: from softball, cricket, baseball families and through friends. One of our team members watched her son play Tee Ball at school. It looked so much fun that she decided to give it a try. That was in 2006. At 58 years old she plays summer and winter and still loves it! NB ORGANIZERS: COULD YOU PLEASE MAKE THIS DONATION FROM THE NORTH BALWYN BASEBALL CLUB WOMEN **not ** from me. Cheers, Kate Colclough

  • Gregg Clutterbuck

    As the coach of a brand new women's baseball team in Melbourne, it will be awesome to be able to show girls that will come through grass-roots clubs that there are the same pathways and opportunities for them as there are for the boys.

  • Nichole Lambert

    All our children love baseball (male and female) and deserve the opportunity of elite pathways - regardless of their genders.

  • Leah Trebilcock

    As a young girl attending Giants games, Team Australia and ABL manager Tony Harris told me never to let anyone tell me girls can't play baseball at the top level. A League of Her Own is a childhood dream come to life.
