Networking for Women’s Baseball

OTTAWA – If you’ve always wanted to connect with people on the subject of women’s baseball, here is your chance to join a social networking group that has recently been created called “Ladies in Baseball.”

This social networking group was created on Facebook by Deb Bettencourt and Christine Burgess for all players, coaches, umpires, fans, parents and everyone else involved in girls and women’s baseball around the world.

I think this group will be a great tool to help connect everyone and keep people informed as to what is happening and perhaps to allow us to cohesively work together on all levels of the sport,” says Christine Burgess in a statement via e-mail.

The group was created after the success that Bettencourt and Burgess found in recruiting players for a women’s reunion game at the National Baseball Hall of Fame’s Doubleday Field in Cooperstown, New York last September.

For those interested in joining this growing community, go to and sign up.
