leagues to help teach young girls the fundamentals of the game of baseball.
The Jr. Giants, a project sponsored by the San Francisco Giants Community Fund, is a free baseball
league program for youth (boys and girls) from ages 5-18 who live in inner cities and rural suburbs in
California, Oregon and Nevada.

The CWBL has conducted several "Jr Giants Girls Clinics" over the last couple of years
for many of the young girls involved in their local Jr. Giants leagues. We have held
clinics in community parks, on minor league baseball fields (Fresno Grizzlies), and even
at AT&T Park in San Francisco after a SF Giants game.
The CWBL knows the importance of athletics for young girls as we were once young
girls ourselves. We also know that there have been several research studies which have
indicated that participation in sports enhances body image and self-esteem, increases
confidence, and reduces the risk of many physiological and psychological conditions. It
has also been found that female athletes have a lower school drop out rate, are more
likely to go to college, and are less likely to get pregnant as teens than non-athlete girls.
For these reasons, and for our desire to pass on the love of the game of baseball, the
CWBL is proud to be involved in the community and with young girls in such a way.
