Bonding Through Baseball

No matter how good a staff is people will get on each other's nerves eventually. People focus on the pettiest gripes. Don't deny it, you do it too! Left unattended, these pressures can break down an otherwise efficient team. That's why it is vitally important to do something away from work to rebuild the spirit of cooperation. Baseball has done the trick for us. Last week was "Library Appreciation Day" at U.S. Cellular Field, home of the Chicago White Sox, so some Library staff and kids from Project Next Generation took a chartered bus to the game. Though the Sox are not living up to the joyous days of the 2005 championship season, they managed to polish off the Baltimore Orioles by a score of 11-6. Even better, our Library's name appeared on the scoreboard! If work is getting too heavy, get out and have some fun. All work and no play makes Johnny a dull librarian.
