Austin TX Real Estate - Hill Country Austin Lakeway Homes for Sale: Texas Rangers looking for Ball GIRLS

Texas Rangers looking for Ball GIRLS

The Texas Rangers held tryouts for Ball GIRLS this weekend.  Yes, I said Ball Girls, not Ball Boys or Bat Boys.  This will be the second year they have decided to have Ball Girls represent them.

There were about 20 girls fighting for 6 positions.  What's interesting is that these girls aren't there just to run after foul balls and throw them to the crowd. On the contrary.  They are there to also help warm-up the players.  They will field balls hit and thrown.  They will also have to be able to throw that ball back, long and accurately.

In addition to their on the field duties, they are expanding last year's duties to also be spokewomen for the team and appear at promotional gatherings. 

It sounds like a lot of fun, and I wish I still had a good arm... though I'm probably too old for what they're looking for.

Here is more on the story.

Thanks Mike, but I don't think so... I throw like a girl! The girls trying out don't throw like girls. I used to have an arm, but not anymore. I tried intramurals, and I was embarrassed!

Hi Donna:  I think this is absolutely fabulous for the Rangers to do this.  Everything is always done for the boys, and the girls are so often overlooked by the major sports teams... except when they want good looking cheerleaders.  Thanks so much for sharing.
