Justine Siegal is empowering girls through baseball!

"It's an honor to make history but it's much more important that we build a better future."

Introducing the talented, Justine Siegal, the only woman in the United States good enough to pitch batting practice to 6 Major League Baseball teams. Having had to prove herself to coaches, parents and other players in the youth leagues of her native Cleveland, Justine insisted on playing baseball instead of softball and became a star in the process. Justine was honored by the Women's Sport Foundation at their 32nd Annual Salute to Women in Sports Gala, was named an espnW Everyday Hero, and USA Baseball nominated her for an IOC Woman of the Year Award. 

 

  

Asked about the importance of her historical accomplishments, Justine shares, "It's an honor to make history but its much more important that we build a better future."
