Grad Research (?): Featuring the Machine in the Garden Softball Team

For our 150th blog post at AMS :: ATX (!!), we thought it might be nice to show you another side of our department. American Studies graduate students certainly work hard, but we also play hard. Several members of the graduate community band together each spring to play softball in the UT intramural league. Today, we bring you some photos of the Machine in the Garden team, the name (of course) an homage to Leo Marx’s canonical American Studies text. While the team’s record was not one for the books, we had a wonderful time getting out in the sun and working out some of our academic aggression on the field. Enjoy!

    The machine is actually the second (at least) grad softball team. In the 1990s, the team was called “the Frederick Jackson Turner Overdrive.”
