Softball returns to action on Sunday

Sure, the Hotlanta Softball League took May 11 off. It was Mother’s Day, after all.

But here are more photos from games held on May 4. Who needs a good excuse to publish additional pics of jocks and jockettes doing their thing? If you missed Round One of the pics from May 4, go here.

Teams return to the field on Sunday at 9 a.m. That is, if the weather holds and this season, that’s a big if. Softball on Sunday has been rained out three times already this season.

The new round of photos also provides a nice segue into plugging a league happening on Saturday. That’s the date of the Mr. & Ms. Hotlanta Pageant, the annual event that raises money for teams heading to the Gay Softball World Series. This year, the championships are scheduled for August in Seattle.

The pageant, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Wild Mustang, includes about a dozen participants in a drag competition and another dozen or so guys in a swimsuit competition. So the event is a little drag and a little hunk contest. Well, we hope a lot of hunk.

“The drag portion is total camp,” says Art Davenport, HSL’s secretary. “We tell them we don’t want pretty, we want campy.”

Organizers hope to raise $3,000 from the pageant. Cover is $10.
