City of Brotherly Love Softball League Opener

Media Title

The City of Brotherly Love Softball League brings together men and women of every color of the rainbow for casual, friendly sport and has been a charitable force in the Philly’s LGBT community for three decades. Its Opening Day Sunday at Fairmount Park’s Dairy Fields (located across Kelly Drive from the Schuykill River jog/bike trail, up the hill beyond the Grant-on-his-horse statue and through the stone archways) marks 30 years of fun and recreation, and the opening ceremony’s the official kickoff after a morning full of first games of the season. They start early—at 9 a.m.—and it’ll be the first time in uniform for bunches of new team members.

But in order to celebrate the weekend properly, the day before, there’ll be a little Camac Street Block Party kicking off at 2pm, then for five hours Saturday night, a bunch of gay jocks and aspiring jocks will gather for a mix of things we love: drinks, loud pop music and celebratory team spirit.
Thanks to CBLSL’s efforts, hundreds of boys and girls from all over the city, New Jersey and the suburbs bus, bike, drive and carpool into Philadelphia every week to practice and play games in Fairmount Park. And exercise is merely a plus in running ‘round the diamonds; the league also encourages new friendships, loves, a general positive identity and taking part in something more meaningful than just you and your friends going to Woody’s. / Bill Chenevert
