VIEW PHOTOS | Hotlanta Softball League Summer Season @ West Metro

imageThough you won’t find the jocks (and jockettes) of the Hotlanta Softball League on the fields this weekend — it’s a big gay holiday, after all — or next, they return June 13. Take a look at what you can expect.

HSL’s 30th season, which stretches into July, is in full swing. The league took some time out last Saturday to celebrate with its Mr. & Ms. HSL Pageant (view photos), but they routinely play on Sundays at the West Metro Softball Complex on Campbellton Road in southwest Fulton County. It makes for a fun afternoon of gawking at sexy athletes — both male and female — and enjoying some entertaining action on the filed.

imageMen’s teams are competing for a berth to the Gay Softball World Series, this year set for Aug. 16-21 in Columbus, Ohio. Women’s teams will play in the Softball World Series, which is scheduled for Nov 2-6 in Las Vegas.

Coming up for HSL: The league hosts the Big Peach Softball Tournament July 3-4.
