CLGSA Fall Ball

Our Fall softball program is a little different than Spring. With nearly 180 players drafted randomly on a handful of teams, Fall Ball is a time to play, socialize and have fun with all levels of experience in our league.  It doesn't matter if you are new or have played with the CLGSA in the past; bring your glove and enthusiasm, and let's have some fun!

Opening Day 2023

Opening Day is here! For the 38th year in Columbus, LGBTQ+ softball is here to PLAY BALL! Come out to Berliner to support our teams. First pitch by Franklin County Commissioner Erica C Crawley is set for 10am. See you there!
