Welcome to the City of Brotherly Love Softball League

The City of Brotherly Love Softball League is a LGBT-friendly slow pitch softball league in Philadelphia with recreational and competitive levels of play. Regular season sign-ups begin in January and teams form in March. CBLSL welcomes players of all abilities from beginners to advanced ball players looking for competitive play. With over 30 teams, new players clinics, and social events throughout the year, there's something for everyone. Check the Facebook page for upcoming events. 

The CBLSL serves two purposes: to promote, develop and operate a competitive, community-based softball league for the LGBT community in the Philadelphia area and to support community nonprofit groups that support the gay community in Philadelphia. All of the organizations officers are volunteers. There are two seasons: the regular season which takes place from April until the end of July and the "fall ball" season which is playing from September to about the end of October. Fall Ball is a more relaxed version of the regular season. Most new players enjoy getting a taste of softball during fall ball before signing up for the regular season. All games are played on Sundays.
