BASEBALL: West Seattle Little League’s Rockford Peaches take the field


Baseball season around here, of course, means much more than the M’s – here’s another reason to cheer for your local youth leagues: Thanks to Coach Sean for sending the photo of the West Seattle Little League‘s first-ever all-girl coach-pitch team, the Rockford Peaches. (Named after a championship-winning all-woman pro-baseball team of the 1940s and 1950s.) He says they’re 6-8 years old, they play all-boy teams, and “are the talk of the town.” You’re invited to cheer them on, with upcoming games including:

Friday, April 8th, 5 pm, at Bar S (Alki Point) vs. the Thunderbirds
Saturday, May 14th, 5:30 pm, Alki Playfield, vs. the Evergreens
Saturday, May 21st, 6 pm, Alki Playfield, vs. the Grays

The full schedule is on the WSLL website; the coach recommends the Friday game because it’s “their only game at Bar-S and the weather is supposed to be awesome!”
