Switch-hitters and straights not welcome in gay softball league
Can gay softball leagues continue to discriminate? The North American Gay Amateur Athletic Alliance or NAGAAA has been hosting the Gay Softball World Series since the 1970s.
However, when the D2 team came in 2nd two years ago, it was challenged by NAGAAA officials who questioned the sexual orientation of several team members. After questioning the men, the NAGAAA found three of the members of D2 to be non-gay and stripped the team of its 2nd place title.
A Seattle judge recently ruled that it is legal for NAGAAA to limit the number of straight players on the teams. However, D2 will press ahead with a lawsuit.
