I have an appointment to see the Lassiter High Softball coach and I am also going to go to their PTA meeting tomorrow night and ask the principal a couple of questions. I want to just focus of the girls having a chance to play baseball and have all of the opportunities as the boys. I am going to call my sister-in-laws, Jackie and Linda and get their view on this subject and also write an editorial for the AJC. I am also going to see about talking with Jolen, Terry’s friend and see if he can create a web page for this and get some people together and get organized. We will also need T-shirts, but with none of us really making any money, I may have to hit up relatives for sponsership.
I am going to speak to Lassiter High softball coach today. I received an email from him last week and he said that he would speak to me before or after classes. I am hopeful that he can give me some information as to why and who decides weather girls can have their own baseball team.
There is no reason why we can’t just stop playing softball and make it baseball for both. The girls are already set up for softball, so just change the coaching, ball and enlarge the field fences and let the girls have their own team. Schedules are already set, there is no good reason. It is clear that very little has to be changed physically, but mentally the men need work.
I started google and quickly realized that the articles were about girls playing with boys, period. I don’t want girls only option to be to play with boys if they want to play baseball, I want to get rid of softball and let them play baseball. Who decides that? State or federal?
Got up and walked a bit and got my brain awake and working. I checked my email and no response from Lassiter’s coach for an interview. I know that he is busy and school just started, so I will give him a few days to respond and then go by the school. I want to talk with the principal also.
I am going to get an outline set and start google going for some research and making some calls. I think that “Give me a good reason…” is going to be on my t-shirts. I have sooo much reaserch. Time to begin.
Today I got a little upset about girls not being able to have a baseball team of their own. I know that most of the high schools have girls softball teams, but where can girls go after college with softball skills? Is there any famous softball players? Softball players sneakers commercials? Million dollar paychecks in the majors? The thought of my granddaughters not being able to choose the same sport as boys just drives me crazy. I called the Cobb County Athletic Director and he was nice, but told me flat out, that girls do not have their own baseball team.
I emailed Lassiter High Softball coach and asked for a 15 minute questions and answer interview and that I wanted to come in person and view the girls softball facilities along side of the boys baseball facilities.
It was a very good day exercise wise, but eating wise, I had to eat what we had available and also some kit kats from Patty. I am out of veggies and dressings and watermelon. I am also out of green tea, honey and lemon juice is almost gone. That leaves me with stuff filled with carbs and calories. Today, hopefully, I can get some better stuff at the store.
I am doing more and more work in the back yard and should have it completely cleared out by the end of summer and then I will spray the greenhouse spot with alot of poison so that I can get a better start next summer.
