Description


NEW DATE HAS BEEN CONFIRMED!

Thursday, July 25th at 5:30 pm on Field 4.

To celebrate Kathy Umland’s retirement from advertising (but not from life), we're hosting a Softball Tournament where Um's past employers and coworkers go head-to-head on the field. Everyone is welcome to spectate and party well into the night.

Important Details

  • It's a party so snacks, desserts, beer and other beverages will be provided.

  • We’ll play on field #4. It’s south of the parking lot, you can’t miss it.

  • There is a small parking lot at the park, however street parking might be the easiest option as the park gets busy in the summer. Spots are generally open on Laurel and Morgan Avenues.

  • There will be minimal seating, so if you'd really like to spectate, bring a lawn chair or two.

  • The entire advertising community and those who have known Kathy over the years are invited. All are welcome (agency folk, clients, friends, partners, etc.) and feel free to share this event with others.

Tournament Logistics

  • First game starts at 5:30 pm (Carmichael Lynch vs Martin Williams); second game starts at 6:30 pm (Periscope vs The Vegetables); winner from first and second games play each other in the Championship at 7:30 pm.

  • We’ll play by Ad League rules, but more relaxed. All are welcome to play, but each team should have at least 8 players (10-15 is best). Due to time constraints, we’ll only play 5 innings.

  • Periscope will provide bats, balls and have a few gloves, but feel free to bring your own.

*The Vegetables were the OG ad league team formed in 1978. They would basically challenge other agencies to play – sparking the beginning of ad league softball. Their motto? Drink more. Care less. If you didn't work with Um at one of these agencies and their motto really hits home; sign up to play with a hodgepodge of ad people who love Umland.
