Ghazaleh “Oz” Sailors: Two-Way Player Seeking Club for 2018 Season; Represented Team USA in 2010

Oz Sailors is an inspiration to girls all around the world who are looking to pursue a career in baseball. Growing up in California, she always dreamed of playing the game at the highest level. But unfortunately, being female made that goal a little more difficult to accomplish than she would’ve liked. Constantly facing criticism, Oz continued to prove her doubters wrong by competing with the boys and showing the world that women can play baseball too. She has been featured on ESPN.com, in the Los Angeles Times, and on news stations around the country. Oz has played/coached in the U.S., Australia, China, and Venezuela, and is now looking to extend her baseball career to Europe.

Coming out of high school, Oz received many Division I offers to play softball around the country (even though she never played organized softball in her life). But since her passion is baseball, she turned down the softball offers and searched for opportunities to extend her baseball career. In 2010, Oz was selected to represent Team USA in Venezuela for the Women’s World Cup where her team won a bronze medal. The following year, Oz earned a spot as the only female in NCAA baseball. She signed with the University of Maine – Presque Isle where she played for four years. After graduating with a degree in Physical Education, Oz made history in 2015 by pitching for the San Rafael Pacifics in the Pacific Association, a professional independent league in Northern California.

After her stint in the Pacific Association, Oz got a chance to take her career down under to Australia. She played in the New South Wales State League around the Sydney area. She played in both the women’s baseball league and the men’s league and performed quite well in both. Although she doesn’t throw hard, Oz is a smart pitcher who throws strikes and mixes her pitches in order to keep hitters off balance. She is versatile and can play multiple positions on the field and is a good contact hitter at the plate.

Aside from playing, Oz is passionate about coaching and would like the chance to use her baseball knowledge to teach young players around the world. She has experience coaching for Major League Baseball in China and would be happy to coach youth alongside playing. Oz is currently in Canberra, Australia where she is playing/coaching for the Ainslie Bears in the Australian Capital Territory League.  She is looking for an opportunity for the upcoming 2018 season preferably in Europe. She is open to playing with either men or women and would like a team to cover flights, accommodations, and a small salary to cover living expenses.
