For over 40+ years, Seattle’s Emerald City Softball Association is the Pacific Northwest’s largest softball organization geared to LGBTQIA+ and non-LGBTQIA+ individuals.
The ECSA Open Division is proud to feature over 30+ teams in the A/B, C, D, and E Divisions. Regular season games are played on Sundays, April through June. Looking for a team? Place a Team Matchmaker ad or email our membership director.
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 proud member of the North American Gay Amateur Athletic Alliance (NAGAAA), the ECSA sends its top teams to each year’s NAGAAA Gay Softball World Series.
