In 2015 and 2016, the Marin Women’s Commission and AT&T partnered with the Pacifics to create events to bring gender equality into baseball’s national discussion. In 2015, on “Throw Like a Girl Night,” the Pacifics signed pitcher Oz Sailors, who became the first woman to don a Pacifics uniform. The theme for 2016 was “Women Run the Show,” with Justine Siegal serving as the team’s skipper.
“We want the ‘Throw Like a Girl’ brand to become an annual fixture at Pacifics games,” said Marin Women’s Commission District 2 Commissioner Cecilia Zamora. “Women are discouraged from pursuing their dreams in many aspects of life, and we hope that ‘Throw Like a Girl’ can help provide real life, inspirational examples of women who followed their dreams and succeeded.”
