'I can't feel my body right now': Goldman Sachs held its annual Wiffle ball tournament and it got a little competitive (GS)

Goldman Sachs Wiffle Ball

Every year, Goldman Sachs hosts a day of Wiffle ball on behalf of DREAM, the Harlem non-profit that runs a charter school and after school programs.

The brainchild of Goldmans’ global co-head of equities trading and execution Brian Levine, it brings together hundreds of employees across the company for a day of fun and camaraderie. Last Friday, Business Insider stopped by the ball fields near Goldman’s NYC office to catch a glimpse of the action and see who would end the day with a year’s worth of bragging rights. 

The event is held on a ball field just north of Goldman Sachs’s 200 West Street headquarters in New York.

Here you can see how the field is set up. Team members pitch to each other, and they aim to hit the ball over a series of lines delineated by cones. The opposing team tries to catch the ball, or otherwise stop it.

Employees grouped themselves into 120 teams divided by division. The teams play three games in pool play before advancing into the final single-elimination round of 16. Each team hits for five minutes in each game.
