Gay jocks hit Atlanta fields for softball series

It wouldn’t be Memorial Day Weekend in gay Atlanta without the Big Peach Softball Tournament. Gay teams from all parts descended on the Metro Softball Complex for the annual event hosted by Hotlanta Softball League.

Two days of play (top photo and gallery below) on Saturday and Sunday were peppered with parties, dinners and other activities when the teams were off the field. Like when they got rowdy in their briefs (view photos) during the Mr. Big Peach Contest.

When play on the field was over, Sunday’s beach-themed Closing Party at Heretic (yup, more photos) and Awards Celebration (yes, pics) honored first through third place in the following divisions in addition to some just-for-fun prizes.
