April 2016: Family Fun Day Kickball Tournament
A new minor league team has been born – the Hydro-Dyne Sharks!
On Saturday, April 9, four teams of Hydro-Dyne Sharks took the field in our first-ever Family Fun Day Kickball Tournament and cookout. Despite a few slips, whiffs and questionable calls, the crowd roared and the event was a huge success!
The day started out with a cookout feast of burgers, wings, dogs and all the sides. After the teams were properly hydrated and stretched (stomachs, anyway), the main event began.
Game 1: Team Orange vs. Team Grey. The first game started off with a bang! Team Orange pulled ahead with a commanding lead in the first inning, and despite a valiant effort, Team Grey was never able to equalize. Team Orange advanced to the Championship game.
Game 2: Team Green vs. Team Blue. This game was close and came down to the final inning. In the end, Team Green prevailed and advanced to the Championship.
2016 Kickball Championship: Team Orange vs. Team Green. In a thrilling game of ups and downs, Team Orange won the day, and the tournament, with three runs to finish the game in the last inning.
After the Tournament, Hydro-Dyne employees, friends and family enjoyed the afternoon with a few games of corn hole before everyone limped home to ice their battle wounds and rest up for our next Hydro-Dyne “Fun-tivity.”
