BFA College Baseball Program

The Goal

To continue to build gender equity in baseball, our goal is to develop more playing opportunities for women at the collegiate level. We will begin by establishing intercollegiate Club Baseball for women across the country—a necessary stepping stone to become an official collegiate sport through sanctioning of governing bodies like the NCAA.

Why college baseball?

The opportunity to play baseball in college is imperative to the development of baseball for girls and women. Girls need to know that they, like their male counterparts, can also continue playing the game they love at the next level. We do support co-ed college baseball, with a few of our alumnae playing and coaching at colleges and universities across the country. But in order to build further equity in the sport, we believe colleges must begin to offer baseball teams for women, and eventually scholarships and programming comparable to fastpitch and other sports.

While our plan will take years of hard work, we are confident we can achieve our goal of women’s college baseball—a major step in creating equity in the sport. We will be hosting our first virtual meeting to discuss next steps for those interested in joining this movement, and talk about our Women’s College Club Baseball Invitational this summer.
