They want to play ball and they want it to be fair. Three parents have filed a lawsuit against the Batavia School District claiming the girls softball team is not given the same facilities and equipment as the boys baseball team. They're calling it discrimination.

According to court papers, the boys baseball team plays at Dwyer Stadium, a minor league baseball field. The girls play on school fields that the parents claim are filled with gravel and are not safe.

The Batavia School District says it is working on a plan to make improvements there.
