Employee Appreciation Night at the Woo Sox and Farewell Sendoff

CDW employees and their families and friends were treated to what has become a summer company tradition -- a rainy night Woo Sox game at Polar Park in Worcester! While the teams battled it out on an increasingly soggy field, our group enjoyed food, drink, and camaraderie under the protected section along the left field line. The home team was up 5-2 going into the ninth inning, but with two outs and two strikes on the batter, Scranton rallied with a two-run homer. They continued to score two more runs and take the lead 6 to 5. The Woo Sox remained scoreless in the bottom of the ninth and suffered the loss. There's always next year, however, for another fun corporate outing for all ages!

Thanks to all who participated and a special farewell to Quinn, CDW's intrepid environmental scientist who is moving to Austria for his next adventure. We'll miss you and know that you'll always have a place here at CDW!
