Find your softball team for 2016 at ECSA Field Day - February 13

The Emerald City Softball Association, the Northwest's largest Gay-softball organization, invites players of all types to its Feb. 13 event

The Emerald City Softball Association (ECSA) invites players of all types to find their team for 2016 at its annual Field Day event, Saturday, Feb. 13, at 10 a.m., at North SeaTac Park, S. 128th St. and 20th Ave. S., in SeaTac.

With more than 550 active players, the Emerald City Softball Association is the Northwest's largest LGBTQ-focused softball league and one of the largest Gay-sports organizations in the U.S. As a new-player clinic and skills assessment, the Field Day is designed for players of all skill levels. Novices are strongly encouraged to attend, as are seasoned pros. Haven't thrown a ball since childhood? You won't be alone, league officials say.

'It's a great chance to meet new people from throughout the Seattle area and see what the league is all about,' says James Neely, ECSA membership director.

Representatives from many of the ECSA's 35+ teams will be on hand to introduce themselves and invite new players to their teams for the 2016 softball season, which runs from April 3 to June 12. Games are on Sundays at North SeaTac Park and Petrovitsky Park in Renton. After the season, the ECSA also holds the annual Emerald City Classic tournament in various Seattle-area locations, attracting teams from across the continent.

Field Day participants are strongly encouraged to bring a mitt and molded plastic cleats (no metal spikes). There is no cost and no RSVP required. Players can join the event on Facebook at bit.ly/ECSAFieldDay_2016 to stay apprised of event information.

In case of rain, Field Day will take place on Feb. 14, same time and place. Watch emeraldcitysoftball.org for updates.

About the ECSA
The ECSA started in 1980 in Seattle as a group of friends playing ball and has grown to be a welcoming place for LGBTQ and non-LGBTQ players to partake in the competition and spirit of softball. It is now one of the oldest and largest Gay-softball leagues in the nation.

As a member of the North American Gay Amateur Athletic Alliance (NAGAAA) - which represents more than 13,000 players in 43 member cities in the U.S. and Canada - the ECSA sends its top teams to each year's NAGAAA Gay Softball World Series. In August 2015 a record 11 teams represented Seattle and the ECSA in the World Series in Columbus, Ohio, with the Seattle Maulers placing third in the C Division. This year's series - the 40th annual - is set for Aug. 15-20 in Austin, Texas.

The sense of community and support that players feel when they are a part of the league is what sets the ECSA apart from other organizations, Neely says.

To learn more about the ECSA or to get information on sponsoring the league or its teams, please contact marketing/communications director Tony Stasiek at marcom@seattlegaysoftball.com.
