Kickball’s more than just a game for Daily Record/Evening Sun staffers
It’s amazing how much you can do with a ball and a few bases. To some, kickball is just a children’s game – and playing as an adult is more of a “blast from the past” than anything else.
For us at the York Daily Record/Sunday News, it’s about blowing off some steam and bonding with co-workers.
For the past few months, we’ve been playing kickball once a week among the Daily Record staff. The games aren’t elaborate, but the friendly competition does the trick.
In June, our sister paper, The Evening Sun in Hanover, issued us a challenge, claiming they would beat us in a kickball game.
Naturally, we weren’t going to back down from such a challenge!
The game took place on Saturday, and, despite our best efforts, a five-run fifth inning helped the Evening Sun team prevail, 12-9.
While the loss stings (especially since yours truly didn’t play his best game), we’re focusing more on its after affects.
This wasn’t just a chance to show off athletic prowess; it was an opportunity to bond with other journalists. The game wasn’t about the competition, it was about getting to know our peers.
So while the game was officially a loss for the Daily Record, it’ll go down in our books as a win.
Thank you for the great game Evening Sun staff – just be ready. We’re coming back with a vengeance next year!
