The Hotlanta Softball League opened its spring season on Sunday, sneaking in games before rains moved in. Foul weather delayed the start of the season, which was originally scheduled for March 29.
The league moved to new fields this year, trading the Metro Atlanta Softball Complex in southwest Fulton County for Southside Park on southeast Atlanta. The league plays on most Sundays into July, though there are no games scheduled for April 12 as several teams are traveling to Birmingham for a tournament.
The teams are vying for spots in the Gay Softball World Series later this year. Men’s teams compete in the North American Gay Amateur Athletic Association’s tournament set for Aug. 29 to Sept. 7 in Milwaukee. Women play in the Amateur Sports Alliance of North America’s tournament, which is scheduled for early September in Madison.
In July, the league hosts its annual tournament, which is now called the Big Peach Softball Tournament. The three-day event will also be played at Southside Park.
