Girls were first officially allowed to play Little League softball in 1974, though the first girl to actually play Little League was Kathryn Johnston in 1950 in Corning, N.Y. The first girl to play in the World Series was Victoria Roche, in 1984, for a team from Brussels, Belgium. According to SI.com, in 2012, there were about 331,000 girls playing softball in the Little League program.
The Webb City Girls Little League Softball program continues this tradition by offering young girls a recreational opportunity for building lifelong friendships and to instill in each player the values found in the Little League Motto; Character, Courage, and Loyalty. Girls age 4 and up are eligible to participate.
