Baseball P.E.I. will hold girls spring baseball camps Saturday, April 9, at Westisle Composite High School, at 2 p.m., and Sunday, April 10, at 10 a.m., at Holland College, as a way to bring more females into the game.

It's a chance for girls to break a trend or two, said Randy Byrne, executive director of Baseball P.E.I.

"The myth is that once children reach a certain age, boys should play baseball and girls should play softball. That simply isn't correct," said Byrne. "Girls are welcome to play baseball at any age and indeed we want more girls to try and play baseball. These indoor camps are a great way for girls to either try and/or play baseball with other girls and have fun."

Camps are free and open to any girls interesting in trying baseball and those already playing baseball.

Brandon Guenette, head coach of the Baseball Nova Scotia's provincial under-16 girls team, and Island baseball players Tessa Hood and Mackenzie Pinet will be guest instructors.
