Weekdays 3p-7p

You might have heard about nine year-old Evangeline who wrote Tampa Mayor Jane Castor about the lack of girl’s softball fields in the city. Well if you haven’t, here’s a recap. Evangeline let the Mayor know that the Palma Ceia Little League had only one field for girls softball while the boys had four baseball fields. The line Evangeline wrote that we think brought the issue home was: “It’s not the 1800’s anymore and girls would like to play sports, too.

Mayor Castor did receive the letter and through some grants, more softball fields are being built in the city of Tampa! Boom, the power of the pen!

Well, Kelly Clarkson brought Evangeline on her talk show to interview this Tampa catalyst for change. Here’s the interview:

Evangeline did a fantastic job on the Kelly Clarkson show talking about getting more ball fields in Tampa. Mayor Castor even invited her to meet with her and hear what other ideas the now 10 year-old has. Kelly and the interview segment sponsor Pilot Pens also gave Evangeline $5000!
