While I can't say this winter was especially brutal, cold, snowy, or long (Global Warming, anyone?), I can say that his certainly felt like forever since our bright yellow balls were getting kicked...
Let me rephrase... Four months without any NYCSSC Kickball just seems like much too long!
Thankfully, though, the temps are on the rise, the blacktop is clear, and the balls are ripe for the kickin'. And with the addition of our Saturday afternoon league, teams are able to get out there and enjoy the sunny summer afternoons... not to mention get an early start at the bar.
Check out some of our teams enjoying their very first day on the black top.
That Pitch Cray (Black) was prepared for the sun. This team that hails from the South knows how to look cool with some 80s style shades:
Kicking and Screaming (Orange) was able to rack up some runs in their very first game, and celebrated at home plate with some high fives:
New Kicks On the Block (Sapphire) brought their very own cheering (and sometimes heckling) section. Check out these fans getting a little too into the game...
...so much so that our ref, Justin, couldn't believe his eyes
But, it's ok, in the end, all is right in the world. Kickball is back!
