ENVISIONING EQUALITY FOR WOMEN AND GIRLS IN

THE END GAME: ENVISIONING EQUALITY FOR WOMEN AND GIRLS IN SPORTS JACQUELYN L. BRIDGEMAN† From the age of 5, I dreamed of the day that I would pitch for the New York Yankees. And I didn’t just dream. I practiced and prepared myself for that career. Every day after school, I would throw 500 pitches against the side of my parents’ garage. By the time I was 10, I had developed a rising fast ball and an impressive curve that would drop off the table, and I was hard at work on a Bob Turley drop. There was no doubt that I was more than prepared to take the first step in the rites of passage to becoming a major league baseball player—Little League. I can remember the Saturday morning when I and a bunch of the “guys” on my street went to tryouts. We were nervous, but I knew that I was good. I remember my intensity—the serious way I threw the ball and swung the bat. I remember how good it felt trying to make my glove “pop” every time I caught the ball. I was drafted number one and was not surprised. I was bigger, faster, more coordinated, and simply better than all of the boys. †.

I would like to thank the organizers of the Losing to Win Conference, particularly Timothy Davis and Earl Smith, and Wake Forest University for inviting me to be part of the conference and allowing me to be part of this symposium. Thanks also to members of the Lutie Lytle Writing Collective who generously gave feedback on several of the ideas in this piece at the 2010 workshop hosted by the University of Kentucky College of Law, and the 2011 workshop hosted by Texas Southern University, Thurgood Marshall College of Law; the Honorable Sally Hopper whose generous summer research grant funding helped support this project; Timothy Hancock for his invaluable research assistance; and my family, particularly my husband, Steven Birdsley, for their constant love and support. 267
