DCGB is excited to be attending this year’s Congressional Baseball Game as a guest of Congresswoman Barragan.
Only two women are playing in the Congressional Baseball Game this year, but the dynamic duo of Linda T. Sánchez and Nanette Barragán see themselves as proof that it’s not a bad thing at all to play like a girl (sorry ‘Ham’ Porter).
Applications for MLB/USA Baseball's Breakthrough Series are OPEN. Apply HERE. Applications are due no later than April 21.
Girls ages 14-18
Participants for the 2019 Girls Baseball Breakthrough Series are selected from a national pool of players, ages 17 and under. The event serves as a platform for those players looking to pursue baseball at the next level.
What is the Girls Baseball Breakthrough Series?
In its first year of existence, the Girls Baseball Breakthrough Series is a joint effort on behalf of USA Baseball (USAB) and Major League Baseball. This unique program focuses on developing the players, on and off the field, by providing elite instruction, competitive play, video coverage, seminars and mentorship, all while exposing players to U.S. National Team scouts and collegiate recruiters. The event is cost-free for participants, with USAB covering expenses.
Participants will also have the opportunity to hear from and interact with some of the highest-ranking and most-experienced women throughout Baseball, as well as receive instruction from a coaching staff consisting of current and former members of the U.S. Women's National Team.

"Throw Like A Girl" is a quest to understand why American women are often shut out of our national pastime. Filmed over a decade, this new documentary follows the Dream Team, a group of trailblazing 12-year old girls, who later encounter difficulty continuing with the sport in high school and college. The film uses baseball as a microcosm to examine gender roles and sexism in our society.
Director Cami J. Kidder is a filmmaker, photographer, and editor in Los Angeles who is drawn to athletic and outdoor subjects. She will hold a Q&A with the audience after the screening to get their feedback because the film is still being edited.
The screening is free and part of the City of Takoma Park's "We Are Takoma" arts and culture series.
