Join us in celebrating our 10th anniversary!

The Palm Springs Gay Softball League (PSGSL) is inviting anybody interested in learning more to come to the league’s new player clinics.

There will be two clinics held, both from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at Demuth Park’s Field No. 7, located in Palm Springs on Mesquite Avenue, just east of El Cielo Road. The first clinic will be Sunday, September 17 and the second on Sunday, September 24.

These clinics are open to anybody—not just members of the LGBT community—who is at least 18 years old. At these clinics, experienced coaches will offer information about the league and assess potential players’ skill levels to make sure everyone is matched with an appropriate team. 

“No matter your experience level, this league has a place for you,” says Scot Howard, the commissioner of the PSGSL. “Our A-division team, made up of our best players, won the Gay Softball World Series again this year. On the other hand, some of our D-division teams have people who have never played before. Really, everyone’s encouraged to join us.”

Howard suggests that potential players come to the clinics dressed appropriately, and that they bring water. 

The fall season kicks off Sunday, October 1. All games are played on Sundays at Big League Dreams in Cathedral City.

To register for a clinic (which is encouraged but not mandatory) or to get more information about the PSGSL, visit PSGSL.org, or email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
