Back in March, I posted about a story in the works for the CBS Evening News about Marti Sementelli, probably the most talented female pitcher in high school baseball these days. The piece finally ran yesterday. It's a nice profile of Marti, a sophomore at Burbank High School in SoCal, and also offers a few glimpses of her dad, Gary. The larger issue - why girls who seek to continue playing beyond rec league face such a difficult road - is addressed briefly and inadequately to my mind. But hey, the whole story is just a few minutes long. That's TV news.
