Bendigo Baseball Association's aim to further develop female participation throughout the region will be boosted by the creation of a new women's sub-committee.
BBA is currently inviting members of the baseball and wider community to nominate themselves for the five available committee positions.
BBA president Anthony Amsing said a standalone women's league was a major priority.
"Our association and more widely, our sport, is committed to increasing female participation in both our junior and senior competitions at local, state and national level," he said.
"A key goal will be to have a standalone women's senior competition in the winter BBA season 2021.
"The executive committee and its affiliated clubs believe that a women's sub-committee made up of like-minded people will be crucial in achieving this core objective and the growth of women's baseball along with the full support of the BBA and its affiliated clubs."

BBA recently had a team compete at the 2021 Women's Baseball Challenge in Ballarat.
Bendigo played two matches at the inaugural tournament, the first was against hosts Alfredton which the visitors won 16-13.
"There was such a great vibe all day," player-team manager Landy Mills said.
"It was both encouraging and exciting to wear the Bendigo colours and for all of the women from the BBA to come together and compete as one team."
