If they're playing with balls... Gay Softball in Napa?

(I hear gay athletes take their sports seriously, so I'll try to avoid any (more) unnecessary puns.)

News came in today that there will be a huge gay softball tournament in Napa on Memorial Day weekend.

I have to admit we're pretty excited (giddy, even?). After lamenting how little gay activities there are in the Valley, this comes our way... Called the Golden Bear Classic, it is hosted by the San Francisco Gay Softball League and will include 70 teams of 18 players each. That will effectively increase Napa's gay out population exponentially--for that weekend at least.

More details:
  • Event weekend: May 23-25
  • Registration on Friday night
  • Games on Sat/Sunday at Napa Valley College, Harvest and Silverado ball fields
  • Open B, C, D Division and Women's Divisions
  • Picnic and Awards Banquet on Sunday
  • Tournament website:
I'm working to get more information about the games, events, etc. Hopefully there's an opportunity for The Valley's Other Fruit to get insider access? We'd definitely be willing to coordinate a tailgate or afterparty...

Updates soon... Special thanks to "Daithi" for the tip.


  1. Oh ask if they need a bat boy... I can clear my schedule for those athletes anytime!!!!

  2. This is BREAKING NEWS! Glad you on top of this stuff and I most def be paying a visit to Napa during that weekend and checking out a ball game or two.

    Who's going to the their Friday night party??? Let's plan something out.
