The Metro Detroit Softball League is looking for players.
In a final recruitment push, the league has announced that it can accept 15 more players for their 2009 season, which marks the 25th year the league has been in play in the area.
The MDSL is looking to fill the positions by May 8.
MDSL is the only gay and lesbian softball league that has been providing an alternative outlet for the community for over two decades. The league is comprised of 250 men and women, most of whom come from Michigan, as well as players from northwest Ohio and Canada. The season runs from May through August at Borden Park in Rochester Hills.
Each MDSL team is guaranteed two games per week, which are played on Sunday. Following weekly play, participants are invited to join their teammates at the bar of the week, at which players support local sponsors throughout the metro Detroit area. Bars of the week provide an additional opportunity to network: make a friend, meet a roommate, find a doctor, a realtor, a lawyer or possible future employer.
MDSL welcomes players of all skill sets and offers four divisions – two recreational and two competitive divisions.
