Redmond’s Emily and Lindsay Tsujikawa will participate in the inaugural “MLB Grit,” a high school baseball invitational designed specifically for girls who play baseball, March 8-10 at the Texas Rangers MLB Youth Academy in Dallas, Texas. Both locals are pitchers and infielders.

The event during Women’s History Month will include development training, as well as competitive tournament play for the more than 60 players. All participants will get to play a game at Globe Life Park, home of the Texas Rangers, on March 8.

Five young women — including Emily — who competed with Team USA, Canada and Puerto Rico in the Women’s Baseball World Cup in 2018 will be participating at this event.

Emily pitched three innings for Team USA at the cup last summer.

Some of the nation’s top female baseball figures, including players and coaches from USA Baseball’s Women’s National Team and former Major League players, will serve as team coaches

Players will also be treated to daily presentations regarding the collegiate recruiting process, as well as alternative careers within baseball (featuring Kim Ng and female executives from the Rangers).
