Babe of the Week: Christine Grant

I remember the very first time I heard of Title IX. I was 16, playing for my high school varsity softball team and in the preseason when it was still freezing in New Jersey, we’d practice inside. My high school very specifically had a girl’s gym and a boy’s gym. The girl’s gym was pretty standard. It fit a basketball court and had bleachers along … Continue reading Babe of the Week: Christine Grant

Babe of the Week: Maria Marino

The Babes love nothing more than a fellow Babe (and fellow New Jerseyan, sorry not sorry) who has worked hard to pave a way for herself in a male-dominated industry. We all know this shit is not easy, especially when the media only spends roughly 5% of their coverage on women’s sports. But that’s why we’re happy to have Maria Marino getting out there and … Continue reading Babe of the Week: Maria Marino
