The battle for equal opportunity in sports is far from won. In fact, the situation is getting worse, not better. Consider this sobering statistic: Since 2004, the gap in the number of sports participation opportunities between males and females has expanded, not decreased.

The Second Rape: Battling PTSD and Betrayal

Andrea Pino

I have PTSD from hearing more than 100 stories of the same sickening abuse and blatant apathy -- holding dozens of survivors; talking dozens away from suicide.

I did not become the next Mary Decker. Not one young athlete since has been able to come close to her caliber and dominance. Taking the good with the bad, it is time to revisit Decker's decades long career in its entirety -- and reclaim our greatest American middle distance runner.

As our nation rounds the corner on another birthday and continues its long history of trying to figure out exactly what it means to be a nation of liberty and justice for all, it's a good time to look at an increasingly "lost" group in our culture: our sons.

The official name of the organization was Oak Lawn Baseball for Boys. For a long time, that was a perfectly acceptable name. I believe it was in 1975 when that name became quite controversial.
