Minneapolis (May 29, 2020) – The North American Gay Amateur Athletic Alliance (NAGAAA) has announced its decision to shift the 2020 Gay Softball World Series (GSWS), originally scheduled to take place this August in Columbus, to 2021. In turn, NAGAAA has reached an agreement with all of its cities and their partners to delay the GSWS location by one year, maintaining the current host city order. To that end, Dallas will host the 2022 GSWS and Minneapolis will host the 2023 GSWS.
The 2023 Gay Softball World Series will take place in late August/early September. For more information about the GSWS in the Minneapolis region, click here.
"During unfamiliar times, we lean on those closest to us, and our softball community is no different," NAGAAA said in a statement. We are all leaning on each other as we try to navigate this new normal."
