ECSA: Excellence, Community, Sportsmanship and Acceptance

ENTERING ITS 35TH YEAR, Seattle's Emerald City Softball Association is the Pacific Northwest's largest softball organization geared to LGBTQ and non-LGBTQ individuals.

In 2014, ECSA features 36 teams in the B, C and D Divisions -- with C and D Divisions each entering the season split into two even divisions -- plus another Masters Division team, for players ages 50 and older. Games are typically on Sundays, April 6 through late June.

The ECSA started in 1980 in Seattle as a group of friends playing ball and has grown to be a welcoming place for LGBTQ and non-LGBTQ players to partake in the competition and spirit of softball. It is now one of the oldest and largest gay-softball leagues in the nation.

As a member of the North American Gay Amateur Athletic Alliance (NAGAAA) -- which represents more than 10,000 players and 800 teams in 44 member cities in the U.S. and Canada -- the ECSA sends its top teams to each year's NAGAAA Gay Softball World Series. The 2014 World Series is in Dallas. In the past 10 years, the ECSA has produced more World Series champions than all but one city.
