On Friday, President Obama met the Philadelphia Phillies in Washington, DC. As a former resident of the Philadelphia area, I certainly found this intriguing and exciting.
However, I couldn’t help myself from asking… when’s the last time a President of the U.S. met with the women… Pro Fastpitch champs (i.e., the female equivalent)? Here’s the answer: never.
So I checked in on the league, National Pro Fastptich, and wasn’t really all that pleased with what I found. There’s only five teams:
Akron Racers (Ohio)
Chicago Bandits (Illinois)
Philadelphia Force (Pennsylvania)
Rockford Thunder (Illinois)
Washington Glory (Washington, DC)
USSA Pride (Florida)
I couldn’t believe how few teams there are. However, I did think it was cool that my own city had a team – the Washington Glory. I was excited to look up their schedule so I can check out a game or two.
