As part of our partnership with Newsweek magazine, 92Y American Conversation brings you interviews with the reporters behind Newsweek’s top stories.

This week, senior sports reporter John Walters takes a look at the gender divide in America’s pastime.  While boys and girls both play soccer and basketball, when it comes to baseball, after a certain age, the only option for most women is to play softball.  How are female baseball “mavericks” challenging the status quo and making the case for collegiate women’s baseball? Watch and then tell us what you think.

Additional footage and still photos for this segment were graciously provided by Bangor Daily News, USA Baseball and Baseball for All.
