ATL team wins World Series appeal

ATL team wins World Series appeal

A team from the Hotlanta Softball League at the center of a controversy from the Gay Softball World Series will keep its second place finish.

The Atlanta Mudcats finished second in the top division of the series, held in late August in Seattle. But they moved to that spot only after filing a protest contesting the number of straight players on D2, a team from the San Francisco Gay Softball League that beat the Mudcats to move into the championship game.

The North American Gay Amateur Athletic Association upheld the protest late last week, keeping in place the Mudcats and the disqualification of D2. The Los Angeles Vipers won the division.
