The tension was building on the parking-lot-turned dodgeball arena on the morning of September 22. The sun beamed down on the field of contenders: 31 teams, filled with 282 Rackers anxious to taste the sweetness of dodgeball victory in the Rackspace dodgeball tournament at the San Antonio office.

In the spirit of supporting a culture of working hard and playing hard, Rackspace Chairman, Graham Weston, and CEO, Lanham Napier, watched while teams with names as unique as their costumes battled it out.

After the last ball bounced, only one team walked away with total dodgeball domination: The Beastie Balls. They won the final match against second place finishers, Balls of Fury. At the end of the day, everyone was victorious in having a great time before getting back to serving the Rackspace mission of greatness, with a few ball bruises here and there.
