    Issued 03/15/2020.


    Welcome

    The Montrose Softball League Association (MSLA) is dedicated to the promotion of amateur softball for all persons, age 18 and older, regardless of race, creed, religion, sex, or national origin, with special emphasis placed on the participation of members of the LGBTQ community of Greater Houston. Our goal is to provide a sports outlet for individuals as a way to meet and interact with like-minded people in the spirit of friendly competition in an environment that promotes good health and fitness. The MSLA is divided into various divisions relative to a player's skill level and we also encourage the involvement of non-LGBT and non-playing members to support the many activities and beneficiaries the MSLA supports.
