Gay softball jocks strip for Big Peach title

Add this share

Hotlanta Softball League has something of a reputation for on-the-field prowess and off-the-field shenanigans. They earn it in part at the Mr. Big Peach contest during gay Atlanta’s annual Big Peach tournament.

The league’s Memorial Weekend of games and social events gives a whole new meaning to “party and play.” They go hard for a softball title by day, but Saturday's festivities went for a whole different crown and sash by night. That's when the jocks hit Blake's on the Park to take off their clothes and see which stud gets the crowd going most.

Saturday’s contenders included six guys and one gal from the local and visiting teams. The contest was emceed by Ruby Redd (photo) and enjoyed by scores inside Blake’s. Gay Atlanta's DJ Neon put the ruckus to a beat.
