GLASA has both men's and women's divisions with more than 60 teams participating in their summer and winter seasons. In addition, the Dodgers will recognize members of the VARSITY GAY LEAGUE (V.G.L.). V.G.L. is California's largest LGBTQ recreational sports league. V.G.L. offers year-round sports leagues, tournaments, outside-the-box competitions and gaming activities. With thousands of members, V.G.L. is committed to connecting players of all ages and skill levels, gay or straight, with new ways to socialize and play. The Dodgers are also proud to partner with GYM Sportsbar, the first and only gay sports bar in Los Angeles, in promoting LGBT night at Dodger Stadium.
