  • ‘Better than boys’: Girls relish first national baseball tournament

    ESPN - 06/07/2015

    Justine Siegel hopes to make that dream a reality — not just for DeVinney, but for future generations of girls. The national tournament, a six-day event held in Kissimmee, Florida, is the brainchild of Siegel and her nonprofit, Baseball For All, which is dedicated to increasing opportunities for girls in the game. The event drew 12 teams of 10 13-year-olds from all over the country, as well as a group of 8- to 10-year-olds who participated in clinics and played in developmental games.

    Siegel grew up playing baseball, went on to coach in both the men’s collegiate and professional ranks, and was the first woman to throw batting practice to an MLB team. She started Baseball For All in 1998 as a 23-year-old in Cleveland. For her “day job,” she’s the director of sports partnerships at Northeastern University’s Center for the Study of Sport in Society.
