Paul's Ball Army's Inaugural Kickball Season Comes to an End

Last week, Studio PBA’s kickball team, Paul’s Ball Army completed its inaugural playoff game in the “Spring” Citywide Architect Kickball League. Due to a mid-game weather postponement the week before, PBA’s match against Barker Rinker Seacat resumed after two completed innings, with Team Orange ahead 9 runs to 5.

PBA’s representation resembled a sea of orange, and the team was firing on all cylinders. Team Orange cruised to a 27-12 defeat of Dog & Pony Show (Barker Rinker Seacat).

Being a win-or-go-home scenario, Paul’s Ball Army then advanced to face the Goliath of the league; Davis Partnership (The Kittens). PBA was narrowly defeated in the opening chug-off and therefore served as the away team, setting up the Kittens to kick last in the game. Stifling defense by the Kittens and a treacherous bottom of the second for the Soldiers flipped the game in Davis’ favor. PBA’s 2-1 lead swung to a 10-2 deficit after two innings. However, the deficit proved to be too difficult for the double-header team to overcome. Paul’s Ball Army fell to the Kittens, 18-10. Meow.

The season is now over, but going .500 in the playoffs proves our team is heading in the right direction. We now have the off-season to practice our splash-catches, head-first dives, and beer chugging. 

Thank you to everyone who played and supported the team by cheering us on!
