At least that’s what we’re calling it here on the winning side.
On the 29th of August, this 2012, Washington Terrace Park played host to the Inaugural Hammacher vs Bradford Softball Game. Representatives from all departments throughout both organizations got together for a spirited 7-inning contest on a beautiful night for a ballgame. The green-clad Hammacher team jumped out to an early lead, only to see the men and women in Blue from Bradford come back to tie things up, then eventually take the lead. A lead they would hold until the top of the final inning, when the Hammacher team exploded for 6 runs to turn a 2-run deficit into a 4-run lead. A sparkling 6-to-3 double play in the bottom of the 7th sent the home team down in order, and sealed bragging rights for an entire year for Hammacher Softball.
Both teams met at the pitcher’s mound for handshakes and hi-fives; sportsmanship rules when all is said and done. Congratulations to both teams on a game well and safely played. It was a great way for all of us to get together away from the office, and we’re sure everyone has already begun to tweak their lineups for The Second Annual Hammacher vs Bradford Softball Game in 2013!
