Thank you for visiting the website for America's Finest City Softball League, San Diego's softball league by and for the LGBT Community!
Founded in 1981, we are San Diego's oldest softball league. At 41 teams in 2013 and just over 600 players, AFCSL is also San Diego's largest softball league.
Whether you were born with a ball in your hand, or are just learning how to throw, we have a home for you!
While we boast some of the most successful softball teams in the world (3 top-5 teams in the last three years), the AFCSL also is very welcoming to new players just trying the sport out.
Our next season will begin in March and teams will be forming soon!

Congratulations to our new board members and thank you to our outgoing board members.
The AFCSL Board of Directors and the members of the AFCSL Hall of Fame would like to recognize the nominees for the 2013 AFCSL Hall of Fame.
Though the voting was close we would like to congratulate Shirlee Linke as the lone member of the 2013 class.
Prior to her retirement in 2010, Shirlee had been a part of the AFCSL for more than 27 years as a player, coach, manager and board member.
For years Shirlee could be found roaming the fields, talking ball for hours before and hours after her games had been played.
From clinics, league, tournaments and World Series around the country, Shirlee represented the AFCSL and San Diego with a passion and pride that few could match.
Congratulations Shirlee, we welcome you to our Hall of Fame!
Thank you for visiting the home of San Diego's softball league by and for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgendered athletes and our supportive heterosexual friends.
