Have an opinion?
What do I think? I think it’s bullshit. Quite frankly I’m getting sick of all this shit about woman/girls should be able to this and that with the guys. Sure I’m all for equality but why do boys have to now be Scouts because girls want in? Why do we have to open up pro sports so girls can play. They have women’s league. You don’t see guys wanting to play in them. And if they did, I’m pretty sure it wouldn’t be allowed. Now girls want to be Navy SEALS and Special Forces. I mean c’mon. These era we live in is getting real stupid. I’ve probably pissed off a bunch of people and feminists. But really? Why do girls/woman want to play in men’s league. I really feel its to prove a point like “look I can play with the guys.” So over this stuff. /rant
😂😂😂😂😂 the boy scouts opened up because no one was joining anymore baseball can open up because it's a no contact sport it's more math and agility while most sports depend on physical strength and biologically men are stronger than woman so a lot of sports do remain separated for that reason it's no reason to be this upset about it it's not a big deal sports and the military won't be worse if more women are participating woman are dominant mentally and men physically if more women were in things better strategy and creativity would be incorporated I see that as a plus
LMAO! No I get it but I’m just saying in general... stuff is just getting a little too crazy. 15+ years ago this wouldn’t even be up for discussion. But now there so much debate about women and girls doing the guy stuff amongst other things. But really that’s why they have women’s leagues for things. I just wouldn’t have any desire to be playing with the guys as a career thing. For fun, sure. So much nonsense. Such as life 🤗🙃🤪
Nina, baseball is a physically demanding sport.. hitting a 100 mile per hour fast ball is one of if not the hardest things to do in all of sports. Sure, women could play but they wouldn't be an asset to any team if men are playing in the same league. The boy scouts are letting girls in because everyone is an over sensitive p**sy. Also, woman are dominant mentally? How often do women cry? How often do men have periods? Men are more suited for the military, there should be one standard for the military, and if you can't perform to that standard, you are out.
Woman are far more intelligent that's how and again woman are capable obviously they would have to be set to the same standers as men if they don't meet them they are out plain and simple
They wouldn't beat out men. There would always be enough men to fill every team easily before needing a woman to play for them
I'm sure 1 or 2 women could beat out some of the men it would not be a easy thing but it's possible just because a woman would not be able to hit the ball that hard doesn't mean she wouldn't be a valuable asset
Yes it does...
So baseball is only about hitting balls? Maybe that's why it's so lame
Maybe I imagined multiple positions and other things then hitting balls
You have to be able to throw the ball fast and far distances, run fast, hard a 100 mile per hour fast ball, pitch, catch. All of those things, a man will do better
Opinion not fact their are definitely woman capable of both
Not opinion. Fact.Fastest female pitch ever, 75 mph. Woman can't throw as fast or as far because of biological physical barriers. A softball field is way smaller than a baseball field and women still have trouble getting the ball to it's destination. You have to be fast enough to out run an 80 mph throw from outfield, this is the only field I would say some women could compete at, but still mostly men are faster and also, you can't just be a runner. There is the potential of full body contact with a 6 foot + 200 lb+ man at full speed, guaranteed that hurts a woman more than a man. A woman can't hit the ball hard enough. It's not opinion it's scientific fact.
Yep women can play in the MLB. We can do everything, it's 2018
There is no rule preventing women from playing in the mlb. There was one but it was overturned in 1992. In 2015, a young French woman was added to the international registration list allowing her to be signed by mlb clubs (didn't happen). So if a woman is good enough, she'll play. It's likely if a woman is -almost- good enough, she might get a shot, in order to be first.There simply has never been a woman good enough to play at the mlb level.I don't think it's impossible, thought it may be -effectively- so. It strikes me that the most likely path would be as a knuckleballer, but maybe i'm wrong.
I think with any sport, both genders should play it, just in separate leagues, unisex sports is just shit.I can't speak for baseball, but the genuine raw difference in ability and skill between male / female football (soccer) here in the UK is stupid. I was watching the women's emgland national team the other week, no joke, 7... Fucking 7 let a pea roller of a ball go past them through the entire defence, if that were the male side they'd literally be forced to resign. As for baseball specifically though I don't know how it works,
Men should compete with men, women should compete with women. I get people want to be politically correct nowadays, but the physical differences between males and females is always gonna be there. Guys are faster and stronger, therefore ladies aren’t a strong asset in a male-dominated team. However, I don’t really care. If she can hold her own, and the guys don’t mind, sure. Otherwise she best just start her own league.
But some women may be better than some of the men currently playing today. I don't think that the women should be given any handicap or prejudice. But is they are that good, what's the harm? Its not even a contact sport.
You’re absolutely right! As long as they’re good there’s no harm. If I’m quite honest, I have no idea what sport this is about. But for example, I’ve heard that a low rank male tennisser beat a high rank female tennisser. Because of their physical differences they should compete within their own gender. Thought because people are so ‘all-inclusive’ nowadays, they just put a lass in the team to seem more diverse.
I think the only real fair thing to do would be to allow them in try-outs but hold them to the same exact standards as the men... Let their stats be the deciding factor. Maybe no women makes it. Maybe 10 make it as second-string. Maybe 10 make it in the starting line-up.
@Lee06, the number 714th ranked male tennis player (17year old) shutout Serena Williams, she didn't even score
Okay... But why not let them go though tryouts? We'll get some great YouTube bloopers if nothing else.
Baseball is boring to watch anyways.
Believe it or not... that's not entertaining to watch or to play against. Back in elementary school we would play against the girls in lacrosse, we even used their sticks and their rules and still crushed them. It's not fun to demolish someone who isn't even similar in skill level to you. Unless you are just playing sports for a participation trophy (which we aren't talking about, these are pros), you want a good competition
Lacrosse... You mean "football with sticks"... No wonder you won... I'm actually really good at baseball, for an average parson. But I'm 5'6 150lbs; so I basicly am useless on a football field and basketball court.
I said we played by their rules, meaning no contact, at all. Also, because you are a man, a woman the same size as you would not be able to perform as well in baseball.
Yes they should. I think the only way we are going to start treating both sexes equally is by not dividing and separating them. Like I feel that Olympic spots should be both men and women together and not spilt. On a side note, I miss that tv show Pitch, it was really good.
Yes, but they need to get rid of women's only leagues like the WNBA. There should be ONE basketball league, one baseball, one football, and every single slot should go to the best available athlete without respect to gender, age, race, or whatever. And let the chips fall where they may.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iHePxxS0K7o
We all know what would happen in this scenario.
@curiousscorpio89 I'll tell you what would happen: the ultra-rare, one-in-a-million woman who can actually compete at the same level as men would receive her due respect and due honor, and all these women who would get crushed by an adolescent boy at their sport would go home and kick rocks like the nerds they are.
So long as she is held to the same performance standards as men competing directly with men with no feminist egalitarian tricks, quotas or sliding scales, I'm amenable to it. In reality, I don't think the left, lawyers, courts and media will be willing to leave it alone because their objectives are to ruin everything. It will become a circus and the game will be poisoned.
If the individual woman was good enough then she can play. There's no rules against it. You just have to be good enough. Millions upon millions of very talented professional baseball players never make it to the bigs. Let alone all the college players who don't make it in the minors and go semi-pro or professional in another country. The MLB is the best of the best. So, if a woman was good enough she would get it and I have no problem with that. I just don't think it will ever happen unless they start allowing women using PEDS and women only. Which won't happen. So. . . .
No, I tell you why. Back when I was in middle school I have line-drived (Hit the ball back at) the pitcher and they still managed to take the hit by the ball and still throw me out at first. I line-drived a lady in my class by the name of Lynn and almost broke her leg. Still to this day I feel bad about it. Woman in most cases can not take the hits man can. If woman want to make there own woman's MLB where it's all woman then I say sure why not?
All these women saying yes makes my brain cells die. No, women should not play in MLB unless it’s on a women only team. Men are, on average, literally built stronger. They’d run faster to the bases, pitch harder, and bat harder. A woman would be a handicap to the team.
None of you guys have any goddamn experience. Just throwing your unfounded opinion. Have you even seen a trained girl play ever. Yes I can agree untrained girls are no way near untrained boys. And so is the case with trained highly athletes. But on moderate training, I've seen girls kick ass. There are clips online.
But in the off chance that some black woman DOES make the cut, what then?
@BrianMerritt what the hell does being black have to do with it? @Festenshaf yes, I have seen a trained girl player. I’ve also seen trained guys. They’re equally good in their own gender, but guys are BETTER.
Black women are the best athletes. Have you seen them? Gymnastics, running, anything. I was being half-sarcastic.
Yes and women's leagues should be open to men. Gender separation should be abolished in sports.
A woman's gonna have a hard time of it playing the men. The physical differences are just so much. And to be quite honest, men don't play the same when a woman is involved. Whether they do so intentionally or not, they ease up on them. That's not an even playing field.
I think if they have the skills to meet the standards , I see no reason why not, but I absolutely don’t think they should lower their standards in order to allow women to play
I'm not a sports fan by any means. But I know that in college teams there are men's and women's teams. Why can't pro baseball and basketball mirror their college counterparts?
Well for one it's all about viewership and money and honestly who would watch the WMMB.
If women really want to play baseball then why not. Just now that only.001% of women can actually compete with men. They are at a disadvantage so why would a sports team pick a female over a male?
The pic you are showing is off a fictional character, it's a tv show... women can play baseball... its called fast pitch soft ball... no woman could throw as hard or as fast as a man... and what woman wants to get hit by a 98 mph fast ball?
Men and women shouldn't compete directly in physical sports. There are some biological differences.
People are so far removed from the truth that it's ridiculous. All this men and women are equal has pushed people away from believing in things like quantifiable physical differences. Blows my mind.
Men and women have separate sports leagues for a reason. Sure I'd be psyched having women in the men's league (you are so much prettier to watch) but reality is we are not all made equal.
They shouldn't be in it, give em their own women's league or something.There is a reason why we have separate things for women not only could they get hurt or killed but it's just unfair to have them play agaisnt guys, given that we're far more physically superior.
It's probably better to have their own league. The #1 Top Woman's Tennis player would be ranked around #200 worldwide, somewhere in the middle of College Men's Divisions. The sheer physical advantage men have is insane.
That's why softball was invented. Woman in men's leagues ruins the dynamic of the game. Woman require different types because they are physically incapable of playing professional baseball with men. If women joined the league it would change into basically softball.
If a woman can play at a major-league level there's no reason she shouldn't play.
Include them and hold them to the same standards as the men.
Well yes, women should play in MLB, but not the mens ML.
Honestly Major League Baseball should be men or women it's players that are good , skilled and have passion for the game of baseball.
Why not. The only thing is, they might not like the "locker room" talk. And no, don't think that it should be changed because everyone has a right to their freedom too talk... But other than that, no objection.
As long as they don't complain about being crushed by their male counterparts, and say it's sexist to not let them win.
Sure, if one comes along that's good enough. Hasn't happened yet.One tried out for an NBA team once, but didn't make the team.
I see no reason to keep women out of the MLB. Not all women are those girly princesses. There are tons of athletic women
If they think they can handle it then go for it. The world wants the best players possible to compete against the best so bring it
When it comes down to it, so long as the player is skilled at their game, they should be able to compete. Merit and skill should be what determines team building. Nothing else.
Make your own league. Let the guys have their own thing.
It’s not a contact sport, so if they can play at the same level I see no reason why not
Sure, but they need to be at that skill level, no affirmative action bullshit
They don't have the ability to play at the level that the men do. It's just biology at play. It doesn't matter that it's non contact men are more dominant in all the physical aspects. They run faster, they hit harder, they have better reaction times.
I doubt many could due to size & speed, but if she could there’s no reason she shouldn’t.
Very few women are capable of competing in MLB, but those that are should be allowed to compete.
Actually none could.
yea, it's not a physical contact sport. So if she can do it, do it !
I miss that show anyway I'm fine with women been in the mlb either joining a current team or having a female only mlb teams.
If they have the talent, I don't see an issue with it. It's not even a contact sport. The stadiums can even afford to put in a women's locker-room... MLB does not stand for "Men's Baseball League".
Baseball is not an overtly masculine sport. You take a woman with the physiology of Serena Williams and I know for a fact she would hit home run time and time again. I think she would do very well in baseball.
Anyone who is good enough should be allowed to play.
As with all things like this, sure if there are women who can compete at that level.
Yes, it would be hot and badass. Love sporty women!!
I find it hot and i would difenetly sit in front my tv to watch the gameee😝😝
Personally either way I don’t really care. Everyone is equal, wether you have the same genitalia or not. The aspect that someone can’t do something simply because they weren’t born with either genitalia is ridiculous.
If a woman qualifies, why not.P. S.: Serious question - is 2opaz mentally retarded?
@PaminaOr is just a troll.
@Ram0n83 In other words, not retarded but a genuine piece of shit. Okay.
Women wouldn't qualify in the MLB, they simply couldn't reach the same standards even the worst men have in the majors.
@StickStickity13 Hardly any women would qualify, I agree.
@StickStickity13 They wouldn't even qualify for the Minors.
You guys apparently neither know the meaning of the word "if" nor the phenomenon of exceptions.
We do, but the likelyhood is so low it's practically zero.
I disagree because thst would mean thst women's sports could no longer discriminate against men joining.
Practically zero or not, if out of the blue a woman appears who's good enough, she should be allowed to compete.
And vice-versa with men in women's sports. Do we want equality or special treatment?
If she can make the team and help to the team win... more power to her.
As long as there on a girl teams. I don't know about baseball.
Women had their own league why is there a need for equality in everything?
She's hot unlike the average unattractive wnba player
If a woman qualified but i bet even the top ten best women of all time would not be able to beat a good high school or college men’s team.
You'd simply lose that bet..
No she'd be bang on @Festenshaf
@Festenshaf the woman’s team would have a couple good pitchers. Other than that they wouldn’t be able to compete.If a woman pitcher was good enough to compete in mlb, they would use her as a pitcher and she would most likely never go to bat and just have stand ins.
High schoolers can beat "top ten best women of all time" ? You guys should see chics in the MMA before you opinionate yourselves...
Women don't fight men in MMA dumbass
@Festenshaf I've seen this question in tennis. Serena williams would not be in the top 1000 if you combined men and women’s tennis.
"not be in the top 1000" ? Like One Thousand? Okay. I'm outta here... Bye
Mma? Omg even Ronda Rousey would be literally broken boned if not dead after a fight with a man at even a rudimentary level
https://youtu.be/NRuagzlrZ1Q that's literally the first video I googled.
@Festenshaf well then if serena could do better why haven't they had the actual matches? You know why? Because the women would get crushed.
That's for @Nachowedgie
Oh I didn't read the full comment. My bad. Yeah women don't fight men in mma. But an mma trained athlete will beat the crap out of average guys and @Hannajenky claims high schoolers will beat "top ten best women of all time" like seriously?
Baseball is totally different to MMA, it's not even a bad comparison it's just flat out retarded
That example, and not comparison by the way, wasn't intended as qualitative. That was intended to dispel your opinion that trained women are still interior to untrained men..
@Nachowedgie i dont think you understand the difference in strength between a trained male and female athlete. A high schooler who trains everyday has more testisterone than the most manly woman. Its the testosterone that makes you stronger faster and more physically adept. Woman can’t compete with men in sports that require high levels of physical prowess
@Hannajenky you literally just proved my point
Also notice i said originally that yes women should be able to if they qualify. I just dont think they could
I don't care about things like this and I don't know what is MLB
There's always been male and female leagues just start one for women.
No. Sports should be segregated by sex. Sorry to wind all the liberals and social justice warriors up but it’s the truth. Men and women are different especially physically.
If they are able to do everything that is required I don't see why not. I am all for it.
Of course they she play in MLB, it's not even a contact sport so no need to be separated.
But women would not be better than men. They are slower and can't throw as hard. Also can't hit as well.
They can't compete there have been intersex matches before in sports like tennis or soccer which are also non-contact. They lose badly even to teen boys. They would be more prone to injury and it's dangerous. I would love to see a woman take a 90 per hour fast ball with no problems.
@Caaarl The only thing I *might* be able to see her do is bullpen work, and she would need to have a killer repertoire of pitches which I highly doubt she could reach decent speeds
No one is saying "give every women who wants to play a spot on the team". But there might be a handful of women who can play as well as the men.
Baseball is so much more physically demanding than you are giving credit for. Even then, there is enough contact and the potential to get drilled by a 100 mph fastball that would decimate a woman.
@Brand-O Show me one woman that can hit a 100 mph fastball
I don't know every women in the world...
Fastest SOFTBALL pitched by a woman was 75 miles per hour... that's like a mediocre offhanded throw from a college male
Okay, so they probably won't be pitching, doesn't mean that they can't play third or outfield...
Babe Rooth wasn't a pitcher either...
You have to be able to throw far and fast to be an outfielder, so no. Third base ****maybe****, but at that point you are in the potential path of collision from a foul ball down the base line or a runner colliding with you
@Brand-O They would need to have good arms for that, and throw a ball fast enough to throw out people.
Yea but babe Ruth could hit those 90 mph fastball. Women haven't seen anything faster than 75
@wolecollner @Brand-o Who just posted that Babe Ruth wasn't a pitcher? For the first part of his career, before he became an all-world everyday player and hitter, he was one of the best left-handed pitchers of all-time.
I didn't say he wasn't a pitcher @NYCQuestions1976, that other guy did
Okay... KGJ wasn't a pitcher
80% of a baseball team are not pitchers
Doesn't matter. Bottom line, woman can't keep up in MLB
@wolecollner Ah okay. I'm a big baseball fan and when I read that, I was like, "What?"
So let them go to tryouts and figure it out for ethemselves... I have no doute that 75% will quit after the first three days when their catching-hand is so swollen that they can't get it into their mit... But I'm not going to deny them the chance.
What if someone told Dannica Pactric that she wasn't allowed to drive a race car? ... She's not the best driver, no. But she is competitive and she dord her job. And she is better than a lot of the guys.
That's a fucking car dude... required 0 physical strength.
@wolecollner It does take plenty of physical endurance, though. It can get up to 150*F in those cars.
Haha just crack the window 😂
@wolecollner LOL! I know I couldn't do it. I sweat if it's over 70*F or if I just think about sweating. 😂
Haha doesn't it ever get above 70 in New York?
@wolecollner Yes don't remind me. As long as I'm near a swimming pool or air conditioning, I'll survive...
NASCAR requires 0 physical strength? I bet you can't push over a driver... You have no idea the g-forces that they withstand... And when they wreck, it's at 195 mph.
Sure, if they can hold their own. There hasn't been a women's league since the end of world war ii.
As long as they qualify then gender shouldn't be a roadblock. But qualifications shouldn't be relaxed just to let women in.
No, it's mens league. Women and men are physically different. Stastically speaking, men are more physically capable than women. #notallwomen
If one comes along that can play the sport, sure why not?
If they can play as well as the guys, fine, but don't let them in just because they are women. Let them in based on skill.
