Softball is a great place to make new friends in a recreational and athletic setting. Our players come from all areas of Southern California, not solely the LGBTQ communities. We are most definitely “straight friendly” and welcome all diversities. Our goal is to provide a gay-friendly atmosphere for softball players and their fans. We hope to see you on the fields!
