Arizona sexists strike out

The normal first thought would be, “What a bunch of morons.”

But then you see it happened in Arizona, where, apparently, stupid is a right written into the state constitution:

Instead of playing in a championship baseball game, Paige Sultzbach and her team won’t even make it to the dugout.

A Phoenix school that was scheduled to play the 15-year-old Mesa girl and her male teammates forfeited the game rather than face a female player.

Our Lady of Sorrows bowed out of Thursday night’s game against Mesa Preparatory Academy in the Arizona Charter Athletic Association championship. The game had been scheduled at Phoenix College.

Paige, who plays second base at Mesa Prep, had to sit out two previous games against Our Lady of Sorrows out of respect for its beliefs. But having her miss the championship was not an option for Mesa Prep.

Our Lady really was willing to give up a whole season of hard work because they didn’t want to play against a girl? Don’t they know that girls have played in the Little League World Series since 1984?

What a bunch of losers.
