Progressive Industries’s Team Outing is a Home Run!

| September 9, 2016 | 0 Comments


To celebrate a summer of hard work, and to kick off Labor Day weekend, Progressive Industries generously treated the team to see the Chicago Cubs play at beautiful Wrigley Field. After meeting under the historic marquee, the Progressive crew bounced with excitement, ready to cheer on the Cubs and chip away at the curse of the Billy Goat.

The Chicago Cubs went head to head against the San Francisco Giants, ultimately winning the game 2-1 with relative ease. The Cubs are currently number one in the National League Central Division, making them viable to win the 2016 World Series, their would-be first in over 100 years. Needless to say, it’s a very special time to be watching the Cubs play, and the opportunity to watch them was cherished by all.

The trip not only gave everyone the chance to revel in sport and sunshine before gusty fall, but allowed the crew to bond over beers and brats (and cheese-caramel popcorn, and tiny helmets full of ice cream, and personal pizzas, and… you get the point). The field’s atmosphere was cheerful as always, making it a great place to unwind and act silly with coworkers. Mike Prindle was feeling particularly mischievous that day, according to Katharine Owens, as he attempted to borrow her cell phone and text her grandmother, a lifelong Cubs fan, that Katharine was really a Sox fan. (Both have been proportionately shamed—Mike for stealing phones, and Katharine for being a Sox fan).

When asked what his favorite part of the day was Javier Rodriguez said, “Personally I liked the team camaraderie we all displayed at the park.” Prince Prempeh shared this sentiment, stating, “It was nice to go out with everyone outside a work setting. It’s relaxing and you get to know more about everyone.” Sonya Lumpkin also agreed, saying, “My greatest moment at the ballpark was being with my co-workers. I was in awe at how everyone was willing to share their snacks & laughter as we watched the game.” By the end of the day, we were all closer to one another, and it was clear that thanks to Progressive Industries and the Chicago Cubs, a victorious day at the field was had.
