Dewey & LeBoeuf’s softball team didn’t let problems such as misplaced equipment and a bankruptcy get in its way.
The team had a 10-1 regular season record and is “actually quite good—at least for a bunch of lawyers,” the New York Times reports. The team was No. 1 last year in the Lawyers Coed Softball League, and persevered until its playoff loss Thursday evening to Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft.
Team members chipped in to pay the $1,600 league dues after Dewey refused this year to pick up the tab. Many players would like to stay on the team next season. “Like good lawyers, they have begun to strategize, looking for loopholes that might allow them to play," the Times says.
