“I’m just trying to be a ball player…the best ball player I can be,” the 27-year-old actress shared in a recent interview. “I’m trying not to focus on the spectacle of being the first woman in baseball.”
She continued, “There are a lot of parallels going on now. I do feel I have a responsibility to empower women and to inspire them. And not just women – anyone who has a dream. To tell them: You don’t need to forego your dreams. You can achieve them and be any size, shape, color gender, creed, whatever it is, you can do it.”
Kylie added later about her pitch speed, “I’m probably around 55 mph. I’m not as fast as Ginny, by any means, but I’m pretty proud of the 55.” She works with Gregg Olson, who actually works with the Padres.
This weekend, Pitch and the Los Angeles Dodgers will host moms, dads and daughters alike at “Take Your Daughter to a Game” day at Dodger Stadium. Starting at 11AM, fans can enter the PITCH Zone Experience (located behind the Left Field Pavilion), a batting cage where they can step up to the plate and test their skills.
