The gay-founded and all-inclusive Southern Southpaw League holds opening ceremonies and the start of games for its fall softball season today. Games will be played every Saturday through November (weather permitting) from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
Founded in 2009, SSL has a mission of helping metro-Atlanta’s four-legged friends, along with providing a sports league with a social and friendly environment for softball players, fans and animal lovers. The mission of the league also includes making donations to local animal charities in the name of teams that place first, second, third and fourth within their divisions.
