Rain washes out Hotlanta Softball tourney

Who said we’re in the middle of a drought?

It was strong thunderstorms that damped the Atlanta Pride Festival parade last Sunday. Yesterday, storms swept through the region in the morning and rained out the Hotlanta Softball League, one of a handful of times rain has drowned out the league’s Sunday games this season.

HSL’s Open Division – the one with teams comprised mostly of men – was playing it’s Commissioner’s Cup on Sunday, working to determine the final two teams that will join the league’s nine others heading to the Gay Softball World Series next month in Seattle.

The opening round of games was in the books, but the severe storms eventually washed out the rest of the tournament. Some 11 teams in the C and D classes are fighting for two berths to the World Series. HSL officials said today that the tournament was rescheduled for July 20, picking up where games were halted when the rain came.

The Women’s Division continues its regular on Sunday before wrapping up July 27.
