HISTORY OF GYGSA

Greater Yakima Girls Softball Association (GYGSA) has been involved in girls' fast-pitch for over 30 years.  

 

On December 2nd, 1983 an agreement between the newly formed GYGSA and the City of Union Gap granted us permission to convert Cahalan Park into a four-field softball complex.  After 18 years at Cahalan Park, GYGSA had outgrown the facility and made the decision to move to Carlon Park in Selah.

 

On July 14, 2005, we partnered with the City of Selah to convert Carlon Park (then a 30-year-old, three-field slow pitch complex) into what we have today.

 

GYGSA has invested over $100,000, along with countless other donations, to have a dedicated four-field complex that hosts GYGSA's fast-pitch league, numerous tournaments, and various other sporting events.  Many updates have been made to the facility over the years.  Most recently, we added score boxes to the fields.

 

We are very thankful to the City of Selah and all the support we have in helping to foster the love of softball to girls throughout the Yakima Valley.
