Softball and media skills are put to the test when young women try out to join the 2017 Phillies ballgirl team.
The Phillies Ballgirls are ambassadors for the Phillies both on and off the field. They represent educated, athletic and energetic women who hope to serve as role models in professional sports for young girls.
Each year, the Phillies Ballgirls make over 150 off-field appearances including TV and radio as well as school visits, nursing home visits, golf and bowling tournaments and fashion shows. They also play softball games and tournaments which all have a charity element.
The Ballgirls are also involved in the Phillies' environmental initiatives by captaining the Red Goes Green Team.
