San Francisco Bay Sox Girls Baseball
A project of the San Francisco Park & Rec Department, The San Francisco Bay Sox Girls Baseball Program is the largest girls baseball program currently operating in the US. Founded in 2015 by former Women’s Baseball players Rachelle "Rocky" Henley and Alex Oglesby with the desire to field an all girls’ team to represent San Francisco in the inaugural Baseball For All National Girls Baseball Tournament.
The Bay Sox Program has grown to provide year-long developmental activities and teams and higher level travel teams for girls ages 6-18. Since it’s inception, the Bay Sox has expanded from one team of 12 girls to serving over 120 girls annually with our clinics and teams, in our quest to show the world just how much the game of baseball needs women and girls.
The philosophy of the Bay Sox program is to provide an inclusive, safe space for the development of female baseball players. The Bay Sox program will develop competitive baseball players that can confidently tryout and play for any baseball team they choose. Our program aims to provide female players with the same opportunities that are traditionally offered to their male counterparts.
The Bay Sox program offers Summer-Fall travel teams, Spring SFYBL teams, Winter workouts, and Fall/Winter monthly free baseball clinics. Join us on 2/19 for a free Bay Sox clinic at Crocker Amazon Playground.
