Softball jocks beer bust toward Opening Day

Add this share

As Hotlanta Softball slides into a new season, they are beer busting their way through pre-season preparations. On Saturday, the gay jocks showed their team spirit at the league's annual Jersey Party.

There was fun. There were games. There were new team jerseys to show off. And since it’s what they do second best after softball, plenty of beer and cocktails were downed during the event at Heretic.

The jersey party hinted at an already busy preseason for HSL. Some players kept the party going with the Talons team at Atlanta Eagle, and still more played through with the Sting at Oscar’s on Sunday after a day of pre-season tournament play. All of that came after a rowdy bowling day, and it all leads up to next week’s Opening Day on March 22 at Metro Atlanta Softball Complex.
