For episode three of women’s baseball the inside pitch, we travel to Cornwall, a town located on England’s most southwestern tip to catch up with Amanda, Doris, Hocking.
It was pretty obvious to most who knew her that Amanda was destined to make a difference in the world of baseball.
After getting her first baseball ball and glove at age 7, she took it to school and convinced them to switch from rounders to baseball.
And from little things, big things grow. Over the last few years, Amanda founded Women’s Baseball UK (WB-UK), was named first General Manager of the GB Women’s Team and has overseen the development of the Women's Baseball UK League which begins May 22!
Amanda also shares with us how she credits baseball with saving her life, and we discuss the aftermath of “that post” that dominated social media.
So sit back, grab a cup of tea, and enjoy episode three of women’s baseball the inside pitch.
