This year was no different as the competitive banter started weeks before the game. Commercial Project Manager Brian Parent led one team while Utility Project Coordinator Rosemarie Nyborg captained the other.
After plenty of foul balls, base hits, and even one home run, Brian’s team took home the victory in a 6 to 5 score game. The game took place at ‘The Gene Burube Field’ at McPhee’s campus commemoratively named for a former employee.
