LGBT Sports Tournament, Sin City Shootout, Hits Las Vegas
An annual gay softball tournament has expanded into a Gay Games-esque event, offering a weekend in Las Vegas filled with 12 sports/events.
The 6th annual Sin City Shootout is set for Jan. 17-20, 2013, featuring ice hockey, basketball, soccer, tennis and more.
“I have attended dozens of softball tournaments and thought if you take the best thing from each of those, and put them all together, it would be an amazing event,” said Eric Ryan, who lives in Los Angeles. “In 2007, I scouted out cities to host the event, [along with] fields, hotels and clubs in those cities to see where we could accomplish all I wanted to do.”
The first Sin City Shootout softball games were played in 2008 and the number of teams participating increased annually—maxing out for the last two years at 175 teams.
