Welcome to the City of Brotherly Love Softball League!

The City of Brotherly Love Softball League is a LGBTQIA+ slow pitch softball league serving the Philadelphia Metropolitan area with recreational and competitive levels of play.  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 LGBTQIA+  community in the Philadelphia area and to support community nonprofit groups that support the  LGBTQIA+  community in Philadelphia. All of the organization's officers are volunteers. 

There are two seasons: the Spring/Summer season, which takes place from April to July, and the Fall season, which is played from September to October. Many new players enjoy learning about softball and the league during the Fall season before signing up for the Spring/Summer season. All games are played on Sundays. 

The CBLSL is a member of the North American Gay Amateur Athletic Alliance (NAGAAA) and the Amateur Sports Alliance of North America (ASANA).
