Local girls who want to play baseball have long been able to participate in D.C.’s little league teams. But while many young girls have signed up to play on co-ed teams, many of them don’t stick with the sport the way boys do in puberty and through high school. A new team just for girls provides a safe space for them to work on their skills, beat the boys and envision a future as players. Kojo sits down with the coach of DC Force and two players from the team.
