Gay-sports championship season started in earnest Memorial Day weekend with the NAGVA (volleyball) championships in Miami. Possibly the biggest of those championships is the Gay Softball World Series, of which Outsports is a proud media sponsor this year. This year the event is in Seattle, Aug. 22-30. They've got a great Web site for the event, so definitely check it out. And don't be surprised if you see Jim roaming the fields for a couple days; He just might be headed up that way for the event. -Cyd Zeigler jr.
