Little League team running on girl power

BY foxsports • August 1, 2014

Every great Little League baseball team seems to have that one power hitter who can crush the ball over the 200-foot fences. For the Toms River, New Jersey, team, that player happens to be a girl.

"I remember watching her hit in the cages at 8 years old, knowing she was a talented young lady," Frazier said, via the New York Post. "I'm very happy for her and can't wait to see Kayla and Toms River represent in Bristol (Conn.)."

Roncin can attribute her success to a great work ethic. She has a personal hitting coach and takes extra batting practice after games in the batting cage in her family's backyard.

Her coach, Tyler Avallone, said even though she's a girl on a boys team, she fits right in.
