A professional women's baseball league in Australia has been delayed due to the impact of Covid-19 but is still on the agenda.
In May, another step forward will be taken when beautiful Geelong hosts the 2022 Australian Women's Baseball Showcase with the support of the Victorian government. Seven games will take place over four days with Australia’s star women and rising female prospects to be split between the Adelaide Giants, Brisbane Bandits and Victoria Aces.
While the showcase is a key step towards a women's league, donations to A League of Her Own are exclusively set aside towards the launch of a professional league.
100% Tax Deductible
