KCIC employees long have bonded by playing softball together in our community. This summer was no different — except that we made our first-ever post-season appearance!

The KCIC Krushers have been playing in the West Potomac Park Coed 5 & 5 Slow Pitch League (5 & 5 is the split between men and women). Everyone is encouraged to play regardless of skill level, and anywhere from 10-18 staffers turn out for each game (yes, mostly the younger consultants).

We finished the regular season 5-2, winning our last game 22-8! Though we lost in the first round of the playoffs, the real “win” was the fun we’ve had. Highlights this season include:

  • A first game against Donohue’s Chophouse that ended in a loss, but showed the Krushers had promise!
  • Eventually pulling to .500 on the season with an 11-4 win against Shannon’s Sluggers. Rookie Thomas Boyd had an impressive scoop catch at first to make a much-needed out and hit a home run to lead the team!
  • Getting revenge on Donohue’s Chophouse with a 9-4 win thanks to Jenny making a cheeky catch at third, Erin putting herself on the line to get to first (ending with a potentially fractured foot), and Patrick pitching sneaky high tosses and curve balls to psych out even the best batters.

Our gratitude to this year’s team captains: Jacob Barnaby and Trevor Cornell, and many thanks to all our fans for their support!
