Please Support Women's Baseball in 2016!

Posted on April 8, 2009 at 2:38am 0 Comments

I started a group on Facebook called "Support Women's Baseball for 2016 Olympics" with the goal of retaining 10,000 members. I am working with IBAF to convince the International Olympic Committee to reinstate baseball in 2016. They are pitching men's AND women's baseball.

By reaching the goal of 10,000 members, we will show the IOC and MLB that we are serious, and that there IS a market for women's… Continue

Women's Baseball to be Added to IBAF's Olympic Bid

Posted on April 6, 2009 at 11:55pm 1 Comment

Today is an exciting day! The International Baseball Federation has announced that it will add women's baseball into its bid to bring baseball back to the 2016 Olympic games! I also had a meeting with the chair of the Chicago 2016 bid committee and he is extremely supportive of the IBAF's efforts to bring baseball back!

Don't forget to join IBAF - Bring Baseball Back in 2016!

Bring Back Baseball!

Posted on April 6, 2009 at 1:50am 1 Comment

I recently returned from the 2009 Sport Accord in Denver where I represented women's baseball for the International Baseball Federation (IBAF). Our goal was to convince the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to reinstate baseball in the 2016 Olympics. I got to work the IBAF exhibit booth with former Major League pitchers, Steve Rogers and Rick Helling, IBAF president, Dr. Harvey Schiller, and other IBAF members. While there, I had an opportunity to… Continue

New NCAA Ruling

Posted on February 10, 2009 at 11:21am 3 Comments

This reversal is a huge plus in the acceptance of girls playing baseball. With a formal recognition that baseball and softball are not the same sport, perhaps more doors will open up for women to play baseball at a higher level.

Line Drive Baseball Academy

Posted on December 22, 2008 at 1:49am 0 Comments

Line Drive Baseball Academy is my newest sponsor! Being able to practice indoors during the cold, winter months is truly a dream come true. They are fully equipped with dirt pitching mounds, 5 batting cages, and top-notch instructors. I love practicing baseball almost as much as I love playing it, so I am extremely grateful to Line Drive for becoming my home away from home! Line Drive Baseball Academy is located at 6501 W 65th St. in Chicago, IL. I… Continue

Wow is your baseball career ever getting big. Good for you Jen. I'm so proud of you. Look at all your followers on this website. You go woman! Keep up the great work you're doing in baseball. I'm honored to be one of your friends too. Kick but and butts this year on the field!

Hi, Jen,
I'm hoping I can go, but my finances are horrible as well. I don't know if the Independence would make it, and even if we did, I might not be a part of the team. However, if I could go, that trip would add so much to my book about women's baseball. (Sigh!)

You rock as a pitcher Jen. Make a video and post on your page so we can all see you in action. Wow two Ws. It's not the gender woman. It's the skill level and you definitely got it. Yeah our year is coming to a close soon too. But then there's next year! Woo Hoo! I love the MSBL. And even when I'm really, really old and can't play I can coach until I pass on of old age. My goal is to make it to at least 80. I don't ever want to get sick of cancer again. I hate it. I just absolutely hate the "C" word and it needs to stay out of my body for the rest of my life.

Jen I would be honored to play on the same team as you in a tournament. And I truly want a photo of you and me together for my home as well.

I had a great plate appearance yesterday forcing the pitcher to walk me. I even crowded the plate on a 3-1 count to force him to either throw across the plate for a strike or mess him up mentally. I messed him up mentally! Even his coach told him to settle down and throw strikes to me before that final 4th ball. Boy I messed him up good! Even my teammates were estatic when I got to first base. Yep baseball. The mental game of baseball works great when you're the batter at the plate. You can force a mind game with the pitcher and take over owning home plate and he can't do nothing about it once you're ahead in the count. Yeah! And we won 11 to 5 as well. Yeah! Sandvipers snake bite on the other team. They are called the venom, poisoned themselves with their own playing, we Sandvipers just kept biting them with our baseball fangs. LOL. All in good baseball fun too. They were great sportsman all through the game even in the end with the good game handshake. Those are the teams I love to play. Win or lose good sportsmen all around...

Oh from home plate? I'll be swinging my pink bat back attacha! Not scared of any baseball pitchers! Keep staying in the news too. You earned it.

What dragon boat team were you on? Jen we're athletic soul sisters for sure! Same sports same dreams. Just different time zones in our ages.
At 3:16pm on August 19, 2009, Norine aka A Real Live Pink Bat said…
Jen you are just refreshing as a person and an athlete. I want to see you play someday. So I can yell my real live pink bat mouth off cheering you on from the stands! Or maybe from home plate if my team challenges your team... LOL
At 1:28pm on August 19, 2009, Norine aka A Real Live Pink Bat said…
Ah Jen so good to hear from you. No I'm not going to the nationals. I'm training for the October 10, 2009 Paddle for a Purpose Rose Regatta Dragon Boat Racing.

I'm on the St. Rose Hospitals breast cancer team as the steersman. It's to benefit women with breast cancer who don't have medical insurance. And just playing baseball here with my Sandvipers teammates.

Keep me posted about your playing in the nationals. You have a brilliant baseball career ahead of you even without the Olympics. You already are an Olympic champion. You don't need a medal to prove it!

Hey Jen why didn't you leave more of a comment in the MSBL group? I miss talking to you. How's life at your end and baseball too?

It hurt hearing that there will be no baseball in the Olympics. You should be a baseball Olympian!

Hey Jen! haha yeah i just kinda started pitching..thought i would give it a try! How have things been going?

Working with MLB pitchers proves that sometimes we must believe the in form vs function theory. If it works, we sometimes don't question it. This being said, we must insist that our pitchers become there own pitching coach with some knowledge of velocity. 80% rotational momentum 20% other. The 8 sequence phases outlined by Tom House and the NPA is our model. These phases are proven as fact and should be adopted by instructors as a foundation for mechanical effiencey. Keep up the good work and love for the game.

Looking at your pictures shows you have a great love for the game and a passion for baseball. Picture 24 is a curve ball release. Your glove side looks good at release. Remember your head movement plays a big part in control of pitches. Keep your head straight and online. Don't watch the ball at release. Your money is made at home plate. Eyes on the catcher.
