Seattle Gay Softball seeks new players February 9
Seattle Gay Softball seeks new players February 9
The Open Division of the Emerald City Softball Association (ECSA) is gearing up for its 2008 season, and we are looking for new players.

The first of two New Player Skills Clinics is set for Saturday, February 9, noon to 2 p.m., at the Rainier Beach Playfields in South Seattle. Rainier Beach Playfields is located on Rainier Ave. S. at the corner of Cloverdale Street (rain date is Sunday, February 10, same time, and same place).

The New Player Skills Clinic is a chance to hit, field, and catch a few softballs and meet teams that are looking for new players. Bringing a softball mitt is a great idea, but extra equipment should be available to borrow.

Our league should be around 30 teams this season - a new record - and there are still plenty of teams looking for players of all skill levels. Teams are formed based by experience and skill level of the players, allowing recreational teams to play against other recreational teams.

The playing season runs from early April through mid-July (with our playoffs) and is open to everybody: men and women, Gay and non-Gay. Much of the growth in the league over the past several years has been at the beginner or recreational level - and the league expects this trend to continue as more and more people learn about the league. Of course, we are just as excited that Seattle will host the 2008 Gay Softball World Series! More information about the World Series can be found by going to the following website: www.series2008.org.

Gay softball is a great way to meet new people and enjoy spending time outdoors in an organized activity. Many of the new players are relatively new to the game, without much experience playing baseball or softball. The upper divisions of the league are great for experienced jocks too.

These upper division teams are also open to both Gay and straight players, which can be a great way to play on a team with friends.

For more information about the New Player Skills Clinics or playing Gay softball this year, visit www.seattlegaysoftball.com or send an email to membershipdirector@seattlegaysoftball.com.

With the World Series coming August 22 - August 30, we also need volunteers and sponsors! If you are not quite ready to put on the cleats and glove, then consider joining our many World Series committees. There are needs with Sponsorship, Volunteer, and Events, to name a few. To sign up as a volunteer, visit www.series2008.org and click on Volunteering. To consider becoming a sponsor, click on Show Your Support.

We look forward to seeing you on the field!
