Maybe Bowden should have given some of the women a tryout. I am sure there were some in the group that can hit the ball better than Wily Mo.

I think the Nats should change the name of this event. Anything designated 101 connotates an entry level. Many of these women you mention already know more than most about the game. The way the Nats are playing maybe the Nats coaches ought to be listening to those of the fairer sex rather than the other way around.
