The baseball season has been going for a couple of weeks, and not just in the major leagues.

In Washington state, the West Seattle Little League season has also gotten underway.

Of course while every parent in the area loves watching their kids go out and play on the weekend, one team has gotten a lot of attention recently.

Coach Sean Eley has assembled his league's first-ever all-girl coach-pitch team, the Rockford Peaches. 

Yep just like the team in the movie A League of Their Own. 

Coach Eley joined Take Two's A Martinez to explain why he put the team together and why he's enjoyed coaching them.
