There’s no crying in baseball.

And not a tear was shed at Kinsmen field yesterday during the Gay Cup.

For the fifth year in a row, as part of Pride Week festivities, the Rainbow slow-pitch squad took to the diamond, this time against the Edmonton Police Service’s national team.

“It’s not just another baseball game this time,” said Jim Dexter, co-ordinator of the event.

“These guys travel all over the country to play, so this is serious.”

Dexter said every year the ball game gets bigger and it’s a great way to cap off an amazing week of celebrations.

“It’s been the best Pride Week ever,” he said. “And now we’re ending it off with a baseball tournament and we’re not losing too bad, so it’s great.”

At last check the Rainbows were down by three, but who’s keeping count anyway?

“Anybody is welcome to come out and play,” Dexter said. “Any skill level, just come out and have a good time.”

Pride Week in Edmonton began June 10 and wrapped up yesterday.
