Under storm clouds the San Francisco Gay Softball League held its opening ceremony Sunday, March 19, though an exhibition game with members of the San Francisco Police Department was postponed due to rain. Gay state Senator Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco), left, and gay District 8 Supervisor Rafael Mandelman threw out ceremonial first pitches at Kimbell Field. There were also appearances by Cheer SF and the San Francisco Lesbian/Gay Freedom Band, the city's official band. SFGSL is marking its 50th anniversary this year, as the Bay Area Reporter previously reported.
