When my character first told me she was a girl who played baseball, my husband gave me a strange look. "In this day and age," he said, "do women and girls really have a hard time playing baseball?"
It was a good question. And for a minute or two I was hoping he was right and I was wrong. He was wrong.
Just watch this YouTube video and you'll see what I mean. It starts off on a positive note, announcing that the first female pitcher is playing pro in the US. Then listen for yourself to see where it goes.
So what are your thoughts about this video? I know what Sam would think.
