King v. Little League Baseball, Inc., 505 F.2d 264 (6th Cir. 1974).

Do girls have the constitutional right to participate on an equal basis with boys in Little League baseball? According to King v. Little League Baseball, Inc., girls do not even possess the right to have this question answered by a federal court. This suggests that the paramount consideration in cases challenging sexual discrimination by private athletic organizations is not the presence of a right, but the existence of a remedy.
