The Slaterettes are proud to be one of a kind, the oldest running all female baseball league in the country. As we enter our 49th season, we are humbled by our ability to offer the opportunity to play baseball to over 100 girls and women each season. This league's mission is not solely to develop baseball players, but to also provide our players a safe and fun experience where they are not simply "the girl" on the boys team.
The Slaterettes have cemented their place in the history of women's baseball in the US, when they were given a place in the Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, NY. One of our jerseys is part of the "Diamond Dreams" exhibition on girls and women in baseball; more than 350,000 visitors see it annually.
In 2016, one of our Slaterettes teams was chosen to be the first all-girl team to participate in the MLB All-Star Youth Classic in San Diego, California. In fact, not only was one of our Slaterettes on the field during the Home Run Derby that year, she also caught a fly ball hit by San Diego Padres first baseman and outfielder, Will Myers!
In 2021, our league made history again when for the first time it sent two teams to Aberdeen, Maryland to participate in the Baseball For All National Girls Baseball Tournament held at the Ripken Experience.
