Welcome to Oak City Softball League


SPRING 2024 SEASON IS UNDERWAY!
We’re excited to announce that our league is now comprised of THREE divisions: Women’s+,

Sunday, March 17th was a gorgeous early spring day in Raleigh, and our first day of play commenced for Competitive and Rec+ Divisions (our Women’s+ Division’s season begins on Sunday, April 7th). Teams got their games in, and the first pitch in Rec+ was thrown out by Rev. Jimmy Gibbs, LGBT+ chaplain for the Raleigh Police Department – we were very happy to welcome him back again to signify the partnership between our league and RPD, and of course to get our season off and running!

SPRING 2024 REGISTRATION IS COMPLETED
We’re excited to announce that our league is now comprised of THREE divisions: Women’s+, Competitive Open (for medium-to-advanced skills), and Rec+ Open (beginner-to-approaching-competitive skills) – registration for Spring 2024 division season is now closed and the (behind the scenes) work begins to prepare for opening day!

Each team in both our Competitive Open and Rec+ Open Divisions is planned to play 14 regular season games, and a minimum of 2 games in the season-ending tournament; our Women’s+ Division teams will each play 6 regular season games, and like the Open Division teams, will play a minimum of 2 games in their season-ending tournament (the tournaments for all divisions will be double-elimination format, weather permitting). Our league is intended to provide a welcoming, respectful environment for LGBT+ (and Allied) players and teams; our code of conduct (which all players attest to at registration) and rules of play are posted on this website. We’ve worked hard to put together what we think will be a great experience for everyone, and can’t wait til opening day!


OAK CITY SOFTBALL LEAGUE’S OPEN DIVISION FALL 2023 LEAGUE TOURNAMENT RESULTS
Congratulations go out to the two teams that battled it out in our two-weekend Open Division Fall 2023 league double-elim tournament – Turn N’ Burn (pictured below, top photo) took the championship on a chilly November 19th in two games under lights against Only Fans (bottom photo), who nabbed both the 2nd place tourney trophy as well as being league season champs, with a spotless 14-0 regular season record. We’re ready to see what the new year brings as far as challenges to these two excellent teams’ records in tourney and seasonal play – March 2024 (and the start of Spring season) will be here before we know it!

NAGAAA/ASANA AND OUR LEAGUE
Spring 2024 will be our third season as Raleigh’s only member city organization of NAGAAA – North American Gay Amateur Athletic Alliance, and our fifth season as Raleigh’s exclusive member city affliliation of ASANA – Amateur Sports Alliance of North America. We are so excited about our membership in both organizations, and we are very much looking forward to our second national tournament encompassing both NAGAAA and ASANA players – more information will be coming during the first weeks of our season! 


A friendly reminder: Our league is intended to provide a welcoming, respectful environment for LGBTQIA+ (and allied) players and teams; our rules of play and code of conduct are posted on this website to provide the proper expectations to everyone affiliated with our league. Both of these items have been the subject of careful review by our leadership team and we believe they set us apart in a positive way in our quest to create a fun environment for our players — we’ve worked hard to put together what we think will be a great experience for everyone!


We use USA Softball Approved Bats Exclusively
We adhere to the use of USA Softball (formerly ASA) approved bats, exclusively. Bats need to have an ASA or USA Softball stamp, and not be on the USA Softball Non-Approved list (this PDF is dated 10-5-2021) in order to be used in Oak City Softball League games. What this means, other than bats not appearing on the ban list, is that any bats in league play MUST have an ASA/USA Softball stamp regardless of other organizations appearing on a bat (USSSA or NSA bats without an ASA/USA stamp are not allowed). Please see league staff if there are questions and we will clarify for you. If you would like to do further research, the updated list is kept on USA Softball’s website; additional explanation of terms, organizations, and stamps can be found in this blog post.
