Why Join Big Apple Softball League?

BASL plays double-header slowpitch softball games on Saturdays & Sundays in a Spring/Summer Season. We aren't just about softball! We host numerous parties and events throughout the year including an Opening Party, End of Season Awards Ceremony, our annual HoliGay Party and monthly league wide socials. Our teams also host happy hours and fundraisers.

Playing with the BASL is a great way to get involved in the LGBTQ+ Community both on and off the field.
