This Frozen-Themed Girls T-Ball Team Is Adorable (Pic)
I don’t know if there are any little girls in your life between the ages of 3 and 8, but if there are, there’s a pretty good chance Disney’s Frozen is the most important thing in their lives. So it shouldn’t surprise you to learn that one group of little girls in Edmund, Oklahoma, decided to name their t-ball team The Sprakling Elsas.
Of course, that name was rejected by the league because it wasn’t tough enough. So they went with The Freeze instead. But they still kept their blue and pink Frozen asthetic, as you can see in the photo above. And when it came time for a team photo, Betsy Gregory, a professional photographer and the mother of the team’s catcher, had a pretty brilliant idea: have the girls all dolled up in their Elsa dresses, then add baseball gear and eyeblack and have them mean-mug for the camera.
The result was an absolutely epic photograph of a Frozen-themed girls t-ball team:
Of course, if you’re into deconstructing social norms, there are a couple ways you could look at this photo.
On one hand, you could say it’s a shame that the division between “girl things” and “boy things” has become so pronounced that you have to convince little girls to play t-ball by making it Frozen-themed, just like you could say it’s a shame that pro sports apparel has to be pink for women to like it. Can’t girls and women like stuff that’s not pink and/or princess-themed? Can’t men enjoy the ballet without the dancers wearing camouflage?
On the other hand, you could say that the photo breaks down those unnecessary divisions between “girl things” and “boy things”, showing that just because things are “girly,” that doesn’t mean they can’t also be tough.
Or you could forgo the deconstruction and just say that sh*t’s adorable.
But go ahead and interpret it however you want.
