Big Peach pitchers and catchers go all weekend

Atlanta played host to gay softball teams from across the U.S. over Memorial Day weekend. When the jocks weren’t stripping for tips, they were battling it out in uniform on the softball diamond.

Round-robin games at Metro Atlanta Softball Complex on Saturday and Sunday left plenty of room for dugout fun. Our photo gallery catches competition, team basecamp craziness, lounging in the sun, and munchies under shaded tents. After a nearly naked Saturday night, Sunday’s champions were crowned – including Atlanta’s own Sharks – along with some just-for-fun awards.
