OTP 2016 July 18: Girls’ softball teams being shut out of city defibrillator policy, while boys’ teams given life-saving devices

Youth softball coaches are furious that their predominantly female leagues have been left out of a city law that gives free defibrillators to youth baseball leagues.

That new law, which Mayor de Blasio signed in May, provides a free automated external defibrillator for baseball leagues who play on city fields in case a kid gets hit with the hard ball in the chest.

“The law should cover all sports,” said Peter DeMauro, a longtime youth sports coach who currently coaches girls’ softball in Brooklyn neighborhoods Bay Ridge and Sunset Park. “It’s only called softball. It’s not a soft ball. It’s the same density as a regular baseball.”
