Sánchez and Barragán to girls: You can play in the major leagues

Video here.

Only two women are playing in the Congressional Baseball Game this year, but the dynamic duo of Linda T. Sánchez and Nanette Barragán see themselves as proof that it’s not a bad thing at all to play like a girl (sorry ‘Ham’ Porter).

Both grew up playing baseball with their brothers, and Barragán one day hopes to see women make it to the majors. For now, “we gotta run for Congress first to make that happen,” she says.
