The Battle American Women Wage to Play Baseball
Event detail

American girls and women have faced over a hundred years of gender discrimination trying to play America's oldest and most conservative game - baseball.

The film Shutout! chronicles the historical and cultural factors that led to the shocking, systematic exclusion of girls and women from baseball since 1909 and celebrates those who've succeeded in the face of such challenges and considers the path forward to make baseball available for everyone.

A panel discussion follows the film with filmmaker Jon Leonoudakis, Ila Borders, "Rocky" Henley, Alex Sickenger Oglesby and Jennifer Ring.  Co-sponsored by the Lefty O'Doul Chapter of the Society for American Baseball Research.
