Both had pretty good collegiate careers, Trinity at So. Carolina and Leah at U
of Arizona. Leah played in the womens baseball league after graduation, but the
league folded so she is back in softball. Both players are from the So Cal area.

face it,  who knows/cares about the ASA programs they played for?
get away from Cal. and who would know?
now if this was a historical show on the developement of womens softball,
great.  but why tell people facts they dont care about?

OK, What would make people care about WSPL?  Why do people watch any sport on
TV?  It doesn't matter if it is a woman's or a man's sports.  Let's hear what
you all have to say.

I have worked on all sorts of televison shows as well as commercials about
sports; Fishing shows, golf, xtreem sports, horesracing, hot boat drag boat
racing and even duck races.  

They all had one thing in common that made people watch these shows.
What do you think that is?

I'm going fishing this weekend.  I hope to see a list when I get back.

It was my understanding that ASA and the WPSL entered into a marketing
agreement to promote the sport. While you do not care maybe others do. I just
think it strange to omit a portion of the sport you are trying to promote. If
the desire to is promote the sport is genuine then ALL aspects of the sport
should be treated the same. I wonder if more sponsors could be obtained if the
Womens program was mentioned.

In reality, no one cares what travel team these girls played for.  Watch any
sporting event and all they talk about is collegiate and high school
(sometimes) history.  Pro football, pro basketball, World Cup Soccer, etc.
They talk about where the players played in college and the honors, etc.
achieved there.  No one cares about the Pop Warner team, AAU teams or club
soccer--and they don't care about ASA Softball.  People move around on these
club teams too often and it's impossible to keep up.  Regardless of where the
learning takes place, it's only the college level that matters, in my opinion,
and I think, in the opinion of the general public.

kind of the same thing as talking about which "wood bat leagues" pro
players were involved with.
if I were from Cal. and had the chance to see and follow the Women's
teams, I would be interested, but then again I would probably already
know.
but for most of the country there is no Women's program.
