NOW IN ITS 37TH YEAR, Seattle's Emerald City Softball Association is the Pacific Northwest's largest softball organization geared to LGBTQ and non-LGBTQ individuals.

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 13,000 players and 800 teams in 43 member cities in the U.S. and Canada -- the ECSA sends its top teams to each year's NAGAAA Gay Softball World Series. The 2015 World Series was Aug. 17-22, 2015, in Columbus, Ohio, and featured a record 11 teams representing Seattle. The 2016 World Series is Aug. 15-20, 2016, in Austin, Texas.
