Lmk when you can find a woman that throws 95 and can hit a 100mph sinker then this can become an actual discussion. Until then you’re wasting everyone’s time

Should all those players who can’t fulfil these criteria be removed from the game?

Turned into a bit of a slinging match so understandably it was locked off.

There needs to be some conversation about the issue. Let’s hope it continues, and in a civil way this time 🙂

Have you tried "Baseball Stars" on the original Nintendo? It has a team called "Lovely Ladies".

Nope! Change doesn’t happen if the issues are swept under the rug for future generations to deal with. Indigenous Australians were not granted the right to vote in elections until 1962. Why? Because it took around 175 years for them to be recognised as true citizens of the land they inhabited long before Europeans came along.

Certainly not saying that a video game featuring women will suddenly eliminate misogyny in the world but it’s all about chipping away and rewriting the norm.

Couldn't you just create a CAP with a girls name?

There is no actual rule that women can't play in the MLB, but rather that there hasn't been any with the physical capabilities required to play at even a minor league level.

Sure technically this is a "fantasy" game to some extent, but why just stop here? Why not make your a CAP a half human alien in a wheel chair in a furry costume?

As another poster pointed out, we can just give our CAPs a woman's name. Considering you can identify as whatever one wants these days, problem solved then.

Let women in, do it the way NHL video games have if you don't want the option you don't use it. It will have 0 effect on men playing this game just like it has 0 effect on the men playing NHL video games.

Just some things to consider:

  1. Last year there was Heidi Watney or whatever her name was, so there's that.
  2. It's a pretty reasonable request to allow players to make a RTTS or CAP that's female. I think after all the outlandish, offensive, or ridiculous CAPs I've seen over the years it's hard to argue that having a female would be too much. What are you really saying if a guy who's 6'7" and under 160 lbs with maxed out head size and blonde dreads is "realistic enough" while a female of any sort is too much? What are you saying if "Stubby [censored]" is okay, but a female of any sort isn't?

I agree. I have seen plenty of racist CAP’s. That would be cool if you could make a CAP a female. It might make more girls interested in the game.
