According to Packers.com, the Green Bay Packers held a dodgeball tournament to wrap up their mandatory minicamp.
This year, the wet weather forced the team inside, so a dodgeball tournament – which has been staged before but not for a few years – was the choice in the gymnasium in the bowels of Lambeau Field.
Not surprisingly, the players were into it from start to finish. Eight captains selected teams of roughly a dozen players and assistant coaches, and if they weren’t hooting about drilling someone with a fastball, they were hollering about the rules and who was in or out.
Teams captained by quarterback Aaron Rodgers and receiver James Jones each won their first two matches and then squared off for bragging rights, with Rodgers’ squad emerging victorious.
