Spotlight on: Your Favorite Kickball Memories

Thank you to all who submitted their favorite kickball memory on Facebook and Twitter in last month's contest.

Here are some of our favorites:

Gabby R.
One of my favorite #kickball memory has to be the 'Wall of Death' with Team Viking Quest in the CA Victory league. Basically we would all line up at the line of encroachment and shout "wall of death! Wall of death!" to intimidate the kicker. Since we were all dressed in Viking gear, it worked pretty well. Such a fun team!!!!
Mike P.
Las Vegas 2009 ASO the #1 Ranked team in the country VS. Frosty Balls the Defending Founders Cup Champions. It was a game for the ages that was ultimately decided in the final inning of play! I never thought kickball could be that intense...
Bill C.
My favorite kickball memory is the first night of the CT Freedom fall session last year when the police showed up and made us all go into the little league field @ Nystroms park because there was a rather large black bear roaming the neighborhood because he heard there was a kickball game going on and he was trying to figure out where we were. We ended up relocating that evening! That was the most exciting game I've ever been to! LMAO!
