Big thanks to Julien Berndt from TLN and Kevin Murphy from the MLL for making this happen. I was able to get a press pass to the Cannons’ last home game at Gillette, and it was really a great atmosphere to shoot in. Check out the highlights above, and let us know what we should film next!
As I mentioned before, Shootout For Soldiers Boston was a great success this past month. Countless fans came out to support those playing in the 24 hours, and overall just above $26,000 was raised for veterans. Check out the recap video above.
A fitting name for the song, Kids Want Techno’s remix of ‘Summer’ truly is a great vibe for the season. While I’m not the biggest fan of their name, KWT produces some really great tracks, and this is one of my favorites. Be sure to check out their others on their SoundCloud if you like their style, I’m sure you won’t be disappointed.
Just over 24 hours ago, a group of close to 40 women took the field and kicked off the first-ever Boston Shootout For Soldiers. The Maryland-based event has been running for 3 years and decided to expand to 5 locations this year. After the women’s game finished, founder Tyler Steinhardt gave his warm opening remarks along with organizer Lt. Col. Mike Sullivan, followed by the (in)famous veterans game. The next 22 hours consisted of a jumble of teams, both organized and pickup, coming together from around New England and beyond to keep the game running. There was a great atmosphere at the event, and we had the privilege of attending and filming close to a third of it. As the game came to a close with a final score of 196-189, a tired group of middle schoolers let loose their cheers, as some finished up playing close to 10 hours in total. The individual efforts to keep the event running were truly admirable, and it was quite a feat to have two full teams running even in the early hours of the morning.
Shootout For Soldiers is a fantastic event, and if you are a resident in Ohio, California, or Long Island, I would highly recommend attending the event when it comes to your state next month. Though the play may not be MLL level, the food was great and apparel was plentiful, all while supporting the troops. Head over to the Shootout For Soldiers website for more information, and keep an eye out for our video coming later this week.
Shootout for Soldiers has launched their 2015 store with gear for both men & women. You do not have to participate in the event to purchase, and honestly this gear is some of the best I’ve seen. Really high quality stuff. Slightly high price-tag, but it’s all going to a good cause. Check it out on the online store.
The Top Gun Fighting Clams took on some tough competition at the Crimson Lax Summer Classic this weekend, and came out with a winning record across their four teams in the tournament. Check out our highlights of players in years 2016, ’17, and ’18, and find out more about the Clams at their website.
