The Palm Springs Gay Softball League (PSGSL) was originally organized in 2004, by our Founding Fathers Tommie Douglas and Jim Hurst. The league began with 4 teams and approximately 50 participants. Today PSGSL has grown to 14 teams with 200+ participants.
PSGSL is a Non-Profit 501(c)3 Corporation. We are a slow pitch softball league, established primarily for GLBTQ persons in the Palm Springs area, but open to all interested players.
The purpose of the PSGSL is to foster local, regional, national and international sports competition predominately for gays and lesbians. We are dedicated to the promotion of the amateur athletic experience for persons of all skill levels and abilities, regardless of sexual orientation, gender, race, creed, religion or national origin. The primary focus of the PSGSL is to provide venues for adult slow-pitch softball competition. Additionally, the organization endeavors to develop people of all abilities and experience to participate in sports competitions.
