Baseball for women is becoming increasingly popular in Quebec. A league has even been created in recent months so that women’s teams can compete against each other. Former Team Quebec player Ann-Sophie Tremblay is pleased to see that the sport is increasingly being played by women.
It is interesting that it is becoming increasingly popular. It really is a great sport and we can develop so much. I learned the most, I grew up, I made friends and we still keep in touch. It gives good experiences to tell. I learned to develop myself as an adult», Explains Ann-Sophie Tremblay.
In Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean, the number of registrations among 4 to 5-year-olds is increasing. One thing is for sure, young girls love to play baseball.
Since I saw my brothers play, I like it because I can throw with them at the same time, and I think it’s very funny», Adds young Noémie.
Women’s baseball day takes place in this form for the first time, and the organization wants to repeat the event next year.
