Mercedes-Benz of Temecula: A Winning Team

November 10th, 2016 by




What’s a great way to encourage team-building skills among co-workers? How about a friendly game of softball? That’s exactly what the Mercedes-Benz of Temecula crew did.

It was the team’s third season playing at the Big League Dreams ballpark in Perris, Calif., welcoming experienced and inexperienced players. Although the team has had unsuccessful seasons in the past, this season would be the one to change all of that.

The Temecula Softball team went into the playoffs on Monday, October 17th with low expectations of winning only to come on top with the classic underdog story. Even though the Temecula team was the last seed facing off against the first, Temecula was ahead on the first inning. Toward the last inning, the team was down one run. Luckily, they had some clutch hits and took a 5 run lead that helped them win the game!

However, it wasn’t over yet, the team still had to win the championships.


With a lot of back and forth between the second seed and the Temecula team, the two were tied at 14 during the last inning. As the crowd bit their nails, anxiously awaiting the end result, it was clear that the second seed put up a good fight but was still no match for the Temecula team. The Temecula team scored 10 runs, finishing the game as Champions!

“The most important thing was [that] we had fun regardless and built good comradery with one another away from the workplace,” said head coach, Matt Hansen.

From only winning two games in three seasons to winning two games in one night and bringing home the trophy only proves how hard members of Mercedes-Benz of Temecula work. They work as a team and defy all odds.
