Softball jocks don drag to crown Miss HSL

Add this share

This was definitely not an evening for the bashful and shy. Jocks from the Hotlanta Softball League swapped their uniforms for drag and worked it hard to snatch the Miss HSL crown. 

The annual competition and fundraiser – this year, it raised cash for AID Atlanta and Lost N Found Youth – is always a hot mess of wigs, drama and flesh. We warned you. And the contestants didn't let us down during the Studio 54-themed event Saturday at Jungle. 

The Reign C's Bunqueesha P. Thunderpussy (top photo), known out of drag as Daniel Middleton-Remeika, took the crown and title from Miss Raven (Jon Ravenelle), who won last year's competition. Bee Bee Stingwell from the Oscars Atlanta Sting was named 1st runner up and Princess Ivawood from Titans C won 2nd runner up.

Miss HSL came a month after the league crowned a new Mr. HSL. And on Saturday, hundreds of out-of-town jocks here for the Big Peach Softball Weekend will cheer on a host of hunks stripping down for the title of Mr. Big Peach. So sexy.
