Titles on the line in Emerald City Softball Association's final week

Who will represent Seattle at the Gay Softball World Series in Dallas? Check out this weekend's games to see who takes the division crowns.

The Emerald City Softball Association, Seattle's LGBTQ softball league, is set to begin the final weekend of its 2014 season on Saturday, June 21, with a full slate of games at Celebration Park in Federal Way.

But with 10 teams still in the hunt for an automatic North American Gay Amateur Athletic Alliance World Series berth in each of the league's three divisions, the excitement is far from over as the ECSA's 35th year winds down.

In the B Division, reserved for the top-skill-level teams, Dirty Dawgs have clinched their fifth-straight division crown. Joining them at the World Series, Sept. 22-27 in Dallas, will be the Battalion and one of two other B Division teams - the Vendetta or Seawolves - based on the outcomes of this weekend's games.

One of three teams - the Knights, SIN or Browns - can still claim the C Division crown based on the weekend's games. At midseason, all three qualified for the division's Parham Division (reserved for teams with the best records at that point) and have played fellow top C teams, as well as each B Division team. The Knights and SIN are tied for the division lead with a 5-4 record, with the Browns one game behind. This would be the first division title for each team.

In the D Division, the Atomic remains in the hunt for its third division title, having won the World Series in 2008. But it has company: Four other teams - the Fat Cats, Monsters, Plastix and Xtreme - are tied with the Atomic for the division lead entering the final week. None of those four has represented Seattle at the World Series before. Tiebreaker games will be played on June 22 at Celebration Park, if necessary.

Should teams come up short, they may have another shot: All C and D Divisions teams may compete in a berth tournament July 12-13 to secure the ECSA's additional berths for the World Series. In all, the ECSA plans to send 10 teams to the Dallas World Series, with three teams in each division plus the Rainiers, representing the ECSA's Masters Division for players ages 50 and older.

EMERALD CITY CLASSIC
ECSA competition doesn't end there. The league will play host to the Emerald City Classic tournament on July 5-6. This year's tournament features 74 teams from 14 cities - a tournament record. Welcome out-of-town players at the ECC's opening party, 7 to 10 p.m. July 4 at World Sports Grille, 731 Westlake Ave. N. An ECC closing party is scheduled for July 6 at Neighbours, 1509 Broadway.

The ECSA also would like to thank its five league sponsors: Bud Light, PB&J Textiles, Rick A. King of Cobalt Mortgage, 1st Security Bank and Rein Fire Ranch. More than 40 community businesses also support individual ECSA teams - including numerous sponsors that have joined the league for the first time in 2014.
