Part One - Baseball Clinic

A baseball skills clinic taught by the D-backs Baseball Academy to develop a connection to the sport.

The development of new players is one of the key elements of D-backs Girls Play Ball, with individual attention and instruction available to the participants.

Part Two - STEM camp

A STEM camp to translate the love of baseball into an appreciation, understanding and passion of the science and mathematics underlying the sport, by the Arizona Diamondbacks Science of Baseball Program. There is no better way to motivate and engage kids in their education than through sports. Baseball, in particular, is uniquely positioned to make STEM learning fun and accessible to everyone. By demonstrating the natural connections between baseball, science and math, participants will learn real-world applications and fun, hands-on projects. Date to be determined, with the camp to take place at Chase Field.

Part Three - Girls will be recognized on field before a D-backs game and each participant will participate in an on-field ceremony!

All participants will receive a game ticket, plus a chaperone ticket. Celebration Game on Saturday, September 5 vs. St. Louis Cardinals at 1:10PM.

NEW for 2020: To celebrate the girls’ accomplishments, an All-Star Game will be held for 40 athletes to represent their team and community with pride! We will bring the big league experience to this game for our first ever Girls Play Ball All-Star Game.

Testimonials

I would like to thank you again for including us in your baseball event on Saturday. Lauren had an amazing time and can’t stop talking about it. She went to practice yesterday and shared with all her teammates how much fun she had.

We feel so fortunate to have been able to be a part of this. You should be so proud of this incredible event. From start to finish it blew us away. Every detail, lunch, professional photographer, hats, shirts, gloves and custom sleeves for the cute Polaroid shots. Simply amazing!

We can’t wait to see the pictures so we can relive it all again. I am team mom and secretary for Lauren's baseball team, The Peaches. We are an all-girls baseball team in Chandler, we are traveling this summer to the Baseball for all Tournament in Rockford, Illinois. We are so excited!”

“Thank you so much for providing this opportunity to all of the girls. Sydney had a smile from ear to ear all day and then her team went on to win their playoff game to advance in the tournament. They play the championship game Saturday! D-backs Girls Play Ball was a huge confidence builder for her. She can’t wait for the Stem camp.”

-- Jennifer, Parent from Phoenix

“Just wanted to thank you and the Arizona Diamondbacks organization for this great event that was put on today you and everyone else did an absolutely amazing job thank you for all that was supplied, and the knowledge and fun times given by the coaches and volunteers. Oh and Baxter! As an ex five-year Stadium operations employee for the Los Angeles Angels organization it really makes me proud and miss my old stomping grounds it was nice to be on the receiving end of these events and how great they are for the kids and our communities.”

-- Todd, Parent from Laveen

“Thank you for organizing such a fantastic program! Sophia learned so much and made new friends. Prior to this program she was unsure if she wanted to play softball. This has confirmed that next year she will be signing up for softball.”

-- Natasha, Parent from Chandler

“Thank you so much for allowing Aubry to participate in this clinic! Means so much to both of us. She has been through some serious depression/anxiety in the last two months in which she has had suicidal intentions. She is now working with behavioral health and so far is doing great. Also, working with a school counselor so she may gain confidence in herself. She was super excited when I mentioned this all girl clinic to her and I’m sure she will be ecstatic when she finds out that she will be attending! She played softball in the past and quit this season due to her emotions but I’m hoping this will get her playing again with confidence. Again, thank you for the opportunity and giving back to the community.”

-- Joann, Parent from Glendale

“Pristina was my student at Villago Middle School and was a star on my boys’ baseball team. She is so thankful that she got accepted to the GPB program! Because her parents couldn’t make it, I represented her that day. I can’t thank the Arizona Diamondbacks enough for the incredible experience! Tina had so much fun with the program and when Casey Wilcox let us on to the field for batting practice it was truly a dream come true for both of us. However, if we weren’t there for GPB earlier in the day that never would’ve happened so I just wanted to let you know that we appreciate the opportunity! With the free tickets we got after the program, we were able to stay at the ballpark all day and had a once in a lifetime type of experience. Thank you so much, you and the rest of the GPB and D-backs staff were incredible. Tina has been a fan her whole life, but for me I think you turned a Chicago kid into a Diamondbacks fan!”

-- Mack, Middle School Teacher who brought a student from Casa Grande
