NAGAAA’s 42nd annual Gay Softball World Series (GSWS) is now in the books as another great success. As a first-time host for the GSWS, the Tampa Host City committee knocked it out of the park. In spite of the rain they were able to leverage six softball fields so all the games were able to be played without any format changes.
And talk about a remarkable fan base – the Seattle Sasssysquatch had a very special fan come out and cheer for them. The 102-year-young grandmother of one of Sassy’s players came to root them on and even had her picture taken with the team.
While NAGAAA is all about competitive softball, off the field the league also serves as family for its many members and friends who are also there to reunite with old friends, to make new friends and have fun in the process. As you can see from the pictures, everyone had a great time!
