ShoreTel Employees Thrive at San Francisco Giants Ballgame

ShoreTel has a long-standing relationship with the San Francisco Giants, who rely on ShoreTel for their communications needs. Plus, we both share the same colors and the same motivation to be the best in our field. 

So when ShoreTel gave us tickets to attend a San Francisco Giants game against Seattle Mariners and a fantasy batting practice, I jumped at the opportunity. The day included batting practice from Giants alumni, full access to the field, food in the dugout, shagging fly balls and more. Being a huge baseball fan, this was perfect! The only thing that could have made it better was if I was recruited to play.

The day started out with an afternoon game against the Seattle Mariners.  We were issued field passes after the game so any guest we brought would be on the field with us. Once we got our passes, we walked onto the field and our names were displayed on the JumboTron. The game was great and the Giants won by a score of 6 -2. 

After the game, the field was ours! It started off with playing catch in the outfield with coworkers, and a dance off with one of the players. We then got to bat against two pitchers -- one chucking fastballs out of a pitching machine and the other was a “coach” doing some soft-toss. It was loads of fun to live out my dream for a few hours. I received a full feel of the stadium, the game and the Giants, and loved every minute of it.

I appreciate what ShoreTel did very close to my birthday. It was a great day and one that won’t be forgotten.
