Games begin at first annual Trailblazer Series |

COMPTON, Calif. — Multiple generations of baseball trailblazers, spanning more than 75 years, converged on the MLB Youth Academy in Compton this weekend. It wasn’t just the nearly 100 girls participating in the inaugural Trailblazer Series, an all-girls baseball tournament sponsored by MLB and USA Baseball. Also on hand were the pioneers who paved the way for the opportunities available to those young ballplayers today, including a number of USA Baseball representatives who served as coaches: MLB’s senior vice president of baseball operations Kim Ng, founder of “Baseball for All“ Justine Siegal and softball star Jennie Finch.
