Leidos Biomed and NCI recently held their 4th Annual Softball Mini Tournament.
A relatively low player turnout resulted in teams consisting of Leidos Biomed, NCI at Frederick, and Nymeo Federal Credit Union employees.
The first round of games started at 5:00 p.m. with Red versus Gray facing off on field 1 and White versus Blue on field 2. Teams Red and White triumphed as the victors of their respective matches.
Before the second round, free ice cream, donated by Leidos, was delivered to the field by the Leidos Ice Cream Truck.
During the break, Kanika Sharma commented that she “never played softball before and was having a blast.”
For the second and final round of games, the White team played the Red team for the overall winner, while the Blue and Gray teams played for fun.
The White team held on to their lead throughout the game to become the overall winner, outscoring the Red team 12-4.
The Blue and Gray teams decided to simply have a fun game of softball instead of being competitive and keeping score. Everyone enjoyed their game, which proved to be a lot of fun for both teams.
“This year seems to be more [focused] on the relaxed and fun side rather than the competitive side,” said David Heimbrook. There was less competition this year compared to years past, which made for a fun evening.
Following the end of the games, pizza and soda were served to finish off the night.
