Keith London is on a mission to create LGBTQ kickball leagues all across America. Growing up, Keith had a passion for both soccer and baseball, then he fell in love with the game that combined the two sports. Now Keith is touring the country setting up leagues. 

“LGBTQ sports changed my life,” said London. “It's a place where you can meet friends in a scene other than a bar. Our AFKL family is one of the most fun groups out there and is super welcoming to any newcomers that want to join.”

Kickball is a game consisting of two teams, bases, and a big 10" rubber ball. Played like baseball or softball, the object is to score more runs than the opposing team. All in all, games are played with 10 fielders, in 7 innings/50 mins, 2 base coaches, outs, and bunting. America’s Finest Kickball League (AFKL) is an adult kickball organization for ages 20-80 years old.

Leagues for the Fall 2017 season are being established in Austin, Boston, Dallas, Houston, Las Vegas, Orlando, Seattle, and Tampa. AFKL is hosting free pickup games around the country to sign up players for each league. Seasonal registration fees vary by city ($65-80) and includes a team jersey
