Austin gay softball players attacked

Two gay softball players in Austin were assaulted over the weekend in what they are calling a hate crime. Matthew Morgan and Emmanuel Winston say they left the gay bar Oil Can Harry's in their softball uniform and were physically attacked by four men yelling anti-gay epithets. Said Morgan:

I'm not gonna go through this and nothing...no action be taken. This is a walk that I've made, that probably everyone on this field has made numerous times and felt safe.

Video after the jump.

There is also a protest march this Saturday.

Hat tip to Jimmy B. and Towleroad.
