All-girls Little League team does well against the boys

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - The Angels from the Rancho Santa Fe Little League are an all-girls team in an all-boys league.

"The best part of the season was a five-game winning streak," manager Jason Stafford said.

"I like playing against the boys because sometimes they lose and we win," player Sidney said.

The girls played together in t-ball, and when it came time to move up to rookie ball there was a decision to make.

"I started asking the mom and dads what do you think? Go to the next level and play rookie ball. The girls seem to be having a blast. I polled the parents. Here we are. Pretty awesome," Stafford said.

The Angels have a secret weapon on their coaching staff in the form of Mark Loretta. The former 2nd baseman for the Padres is now a Padres scout.

"It's flexible enough I can come out here and help coach (my daughter) Lucy and my son Frankie. That's the beautiful part of retirement. You can do that stuff, not be tied to that schedule seven months of the year. It's a grind," Loretta said.

The girls are learning everything you would hope. How to play ball, how to encourage one another, and how to sing.

As for how long they will stay together, its up to them.

"As long as they're having fun. It's the national past time," Stafford said.

And as for how long any of the girls will keep playing baseball, instead of softball, Loretta says the sky's the limit.

"We've never had a female major leaguer. You never know, it might be on the horizon," he said.
