The gay Hotlanta Softball League is taking to the bars for new spring recruits, and the women’s division took to My Sister’s Room on Saturday with an enticing sign-up party and beer bust.

While the men worked a sign-up party at Mixx, for just $10 bucks, MSR offered women all the beer they could drink (top photo) with coaches and players joining in and pumping up the fun of the league both on and off the field.

Hotlanta Softball boasts 550 members and 36 teams in two divisions, an Open Division for both men and women at various skill levels, and a Women’s Division. Individual players and teams are still welcome.

If you haven’t made it to a sign-up party, teams must register and pay by March 4, and online registration for individuals opens March 5.
