The North American Gay Amateur Athletic Alliance and the DC Series 2013 host committee are preparing for this summer’s Gay Softball World Series to be held in the District.

“We are confident in the DC host committee and its support team, and know that Chesapeake & Potomac Softball will put on a fantastic event for our delegation,” said Chris Balton, commissioner of NAGAAA.

More than 4,000 athletes and their supporters representing 180 softball teams are expected in Washington for the series to be held Aug. 26-31.

“High voltage tournaments like the 2013 NAGAAA Gay Softball World Series draw teams from across the country, and we’re thrilled to welcome them to the nation’s capital,” said Elliott Ferguson, president and CEO of Destination DC.

Sponsors of the event include Destination DC, the Greater Washington Sports Alliance, Renaissance Washington, D.C. Downtown Hotel and Nellie’s Sports Bar. The Blade is a media sponsor for the World Series.
