And on the topic of girls and high school baseball, the season is over for Logan Young. A freshman at Bloomington South High School, Logan (actually her parents) sued the Indiana High School Athletic Association for the right to try out for boys baseball. The IHSAA dropped its rule banning girls rather that defend it policy in court.
When we spoke in February, Logan, 15 and an aspiring catcher, was working out in the gym with the boys looking ahead to a March 23 tryout. She told me making the team would be "my greatest accomplishment of freshman year." That didn't happen. Making history - by forcing a change in a long-standing policy - isn't a bad consolation prize.
Thanks to Your Son's Not Going Pro, one of my fave youth sports blogs, which has been all over this story.
