The Silver Bullets broke a lot of new ground and have been recognized by Cooperstown. In 1996, four players hit homeruns and Pam Davis pitched a scoreless inning of relief against the Australian men’s Olympic’s team in a guest appearance with the AA Jacksonville Suns. In 1997, three players hit over .300 and the team dramatically won their final game to finish with a record of 23-22, chalking up their first winning season.
Although the Colorado Silver Bullets lost their sponsorship at the end of their 1997 season, they were a catalyst and a point of convergence for young girls and women who dreamed of playing baseball. Today there exist a number of women’s amateur baseball leagues across the country and USA Baseball fields a national women’s team. And in Rhode Island, the Pawtucket Slaterettes, have been giving girls a chance to learn and play hardball against other girls since 1973.
