The player who sells the most tickets will get to throw out of the first ball! Also, DCGB player Joanie O'Connell is scheduled to sign the National Anthem at the game! She is hoping other players may want to sing with her - contact Lynn O'Connell if your player would like to sing with Joanie.

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.

DCGB is co-sponsoring a screening of A League of Their Own at the Library of Congress with the One Woman One Vote Festival on July 25. This event is part of a nationwide celebration of the 19th Amendment, guaranteeing women the right to vote. We need as many girls as possible to attend the event in uniform. This is a big platform for DCGB to get major visibility! Further details will be forwarded as we get them.
"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.
