Nine area standouts have been added to the 2013 Phillies Ballgirls roster, a program presented by Macy's. The new Phillies Ballgirls were selected by the Phillies after an intense tryout process, which included testing the candidates' softball skills, as well as interpersonal skills and baseball knowledge.
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 a minimum of 10 softball games which all have a charity element.
