Big Apple Softball League

NYC's Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Social Softball League

BASL plays double-header slowpitch softball games on Saturdays in a Spring/Summer and Fall Season. We also host numerous parties and events throughout the year including an Opening Party, Awards Ceremony, Follies and Holi-Gay Party. Our teams also host happy hours and fundraisers.

The league is currently divided into women's divisions and Open divisions. Each division is based on a different skill level and competitive attitude, from the highly competitive to purely recreational.

We have New Player Drafts to ensure players are placed into the divisions relative to their skill and desired level of play, this ensures the league is safe and fun for everyone. We do our best to find a team for EVERY player.  We even host an Annual Skills Clinic in Early Spring both for new players and players looking to brush up their softball skills!

BASL is a great way to meet new LGBTQ+ people and allies in NYC. If you are interested in playing in BASL please come to one of our drafts in the early spring or message us at join@bigapplesoftball.com.
