Gabby Velez Takes Women’s Baseball To New York City
GoodSport Live Interview with Gabby Velez – Breaking Barriers to Play Baseball. This is the first in our series with GoodSport’s Content and Partnerships Director, Rhonda Bird, as she spotlights groundbreaking Baseball for All players.
This organization was founded by Justine Siegal, PhD, who is the first female coach hired by a MLB team. It offers young women like Gabby Velez opportunities to play, coach, and lead in baseball. GoodSport’s Rhonda Bird had the opportunity to speak with Gabby and learn more about her journey. As Gabby shares in our video, when she learned she could play with Baseball for All, it was life-changing.
With the return to sports looking promising, post-pandemic, Gabby’s future with the Reinas is looking bright. Baseball for All believes that “too many girls are told they can’t play baseball,” and we, at GoodSport, agree. We salute Gabby’s efforts and this incredible organization.
