Socket Softball Season Starts With A Win


Socket Softball 2013


Friday, April 19 marked the first game for Socket’s co-ed softball team here in Columbia, MO. The team got off to a great start with a 10-5 win!
A few employees expressed interest in starting an employee softball team for the 2013 season, and we decided it was a great idea. The last time Socket had a company team was in 2008, but we are back and ready for action!
Our opponent on Friday was short the required number of players, but the Socket team sent two of its own so the game could go on. Our remaining squad of 10 players brought home a win in the fifth inning (the games have one-hour time limits) with some very memorable plays.
The highlight of the game was a solo home run hit by Jeff Smith from our accounting department. Everyone on the team had a blast and was happy to have the chance to represent Socket as a team. Catch their next game this Friday, April 26 at 8 p.m. on the purple field at Cosmo Park in Columbia.
