Some 40 teams — from as far away as the New York Gym Mavericks and as close as the Atlanta Pounders — are competing in the Big Peach Softball Tournament this weekend at Southside Park.

The on-the-field action opened on Saturday with round robin games. Play continues Sunday with elimination games and the crowning of champions in three divisions.

imageBut the action has continued off-the-field, too. The tournament opened with a registration party on Friday at Jungle that included a talent show and underwear contest. That’s one way to get to see some of the best parts of the gay jocks at play this weekend.

The Big Peach closes Sunday night with the Official Closing Party at Burkhart’s.
