Gay Softball World Series invites White Sox Gordon Beckham and Jerry Reinsdorf to attend

Local organizers of NAGAAA's Gay Softball World Series have invited Chicago White Sox second baseman Gordon Beckham (right) and team owner Jerry Reinsdorf to the Gay Softball World Series in late August. Beckham previously "apologized" for scrawling "Getz is gay" in the infield of a recent matchup with the Kansas City Royals. From the Windy City Times:

Opening Ceremony for the Gay Softball World Series is Monday night, August 29, at Navy Pier. The Chicago organizing committee—Series 2011 - Chicago, Inc.—sent an invitation to Beckham and Reinsdorf to attend play on Tuesday morning, August 30, in Schaumburg, one of three suburbs where the tournament will be held. The White Sox have a home game that night against Minnesota, starting at 7:10 p.m.
