THE BELLE OF THE SOFTBALL
It’s Drag Queens vs. The Dykes at Bat-N-Rouge softball extravaganza
Bat-N-Rouge

Sunday, June 19

11:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m.

Miller Field at 19th & Thomas

What happens when campy fashion and serious sport collide? Why, you get the Belle of the Softball, of course, Bat-N-Rouge! If you’ve never seen a drag queen go sliding into second base with four-inch pumps aimed at the groin of a tough-looking, tattooed femme, you haven’t seen real sport. Okay, maybe the two teams in this game are not quite that tough. Let’s keep the expectations realistic. However, when the Drag Queens and The Dykes hit the proverbial diamond in the 5th annual Bat-N-Rouge Softball Extravaganza, there will be glitter and fun for the whole family, and all for a good cause.

Game time is from is from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., Sunday, June 19 at Miller Field on Seattle’s Capital Hill (19th & Thomas).

Bat-N-Rouge is a fund-raiser for the Capitol Hill Alano Club (Pine & 13th), the non-profit home of 12 Step groups serving the GLBT community. It is one of the city’s most anticipated sporting events as the unofficial (although professionally umpired) kick-off to Seattle’s Gay Pride Week.

Asked about their chances in the big game, Ricki stated the DQs aren’t a bit worried. “We’re in top shape. This team is looking good,” with an emphasis on good. “No matter who makes the most runs, we’re still going to score the most, you know what I’m saying honey? Besides, isn’t it really all about the children?”

The Dykes team is confident that, while it will be a great game for the fans, the losers will definitely be the Drag Queens. Trina, captain of The Dykes said, “We have a lot of fun at this event, but we when it comes to playing the game, we’re going to kick some serious thong.”

Tickets sell for a suggested donation of $5 each and will be available at the game or in advance at Beyond the Closet bookstore on Pike Street and at the Capitol Hill Alano Club.

The Capitol Hill Alano Club is a non-profit organization, located at Pine & 13th. Over 40 12-Step meetings are held weekly at the club, now celebrating its 23rd year of community service.
