Walker Sands kickball celebrates the season with a post-season party at The Stretch

Today, three time NL MVP, Albert Pujols agreed in principle to join the Walker Sands kickball team for undisclosed terms. Well that’s at least what we were hoping to hear as the Walker Sands company kickball team wrapped up our grueling 1-win season last week with a post-season party. But the goal of the season wasn’t to dominate, it was to have fun, and that was something we did accomplish.

This fall actually marked the inaugural season for the WalkerSands kickball team. The highlight of the year was no doubt a thrilling 11-4 win in week 6. (not because it was our only win, but because it was awesome!). And there were plenty of great individual performances as well. No one can forget Media Relations Specialist Andrew Cross’s outstanding diving catch as he crashed into a left field bush. Account Executive Julie Walsh used her patented full kick swinging bunt to fool the defense on occasion. And ace of the pitching staff Daniel Lologgia, who is also our Digital Marketing Manager in his free time, kept opposing hitters off balance all season, even striking out two batters in one game (in kickball!)

So thanks to everyone who helped kick off (awful pun) the Walker Sands athletic program. Good times were definitely had both on and off the field. Special thanks to The Stretch for picking up our spirits after the games with cheap burgers and tasty beverages. Walker Sands athletics will be back in action after the Chicago winter thaws out.

Do you think you can help lead us to kickball dominance next year? Walker Sands is currently accepting applications for winter internships and in 2 months we’ll begin hunting for summer interns. Check out the Careers page for more information.
