Why is it that girl baseball is always sexualized ? Last one with skirts, now with super tiny shorts ...

It's not possible in real life, I don't know why they'd put that in anime. Try sliding on the ground without pants, with rocks and sand, and after that draw your girls like that ...

Please look up the AAGPBL or at least watch A League of Their Own, lmao.

I mean those uniforms were designed in the 1940s so I think it's fair to wonder why a girls' baseball series set in modern day can't have, y'know, pants. Eyeshield 21 didn't have the guys still wearing leather helmets after all.

The poster said that it was "not possible in real life". And yet a professional baseball league existed for almost 10 years using that exact uniform and we have hours of video footage showing these women playing baseball in similar clothes to what Tamayomi has.

The outfits don't look sexualized at all.
