Ava Benach, through DC Girls Baseball, is building a community of leaders and teaching life skills while giving girls who want to play baseball every opportunity to do so. Through Ava, we meet four tenacious, focused, fearless young ballplayers who change the world every day by playing on their high school teams despite being told they should be playing softball instead, working twice as hard to play a game they love, and traveling hundreds of miles if that’s what it takes to find their team. Hear from Piper "Life is way too short to not play baseball when you want to" Cherry, Maggie “Baseball is what I do” Heaphy, Tess “Don't listen to other people saying not to” Usher, and Rebekah "I saved up all my rebellion and used it to play baseball" Camp. They will inspire you to donate to DCGB to help remove financial barriers for girls who want to play baseball, or find a girls’ team near you and show them your support. Then put on your DCGB gear and come on out to Baseball for All Nationals in Aberdeen, MD July 18-22 to watch history happen.
