Ship softball game

Two Ships Bat

This summer marked the first time that the research vessels Atlantis and Neil Armstrong made a port call in Woods Hole at the same time, and the two crews took the opportunity to play a friendly game of softball. The last time the crews of both large ships met on the field was five years ago—though at that time they were on Atlantis and Knorr. Since then, Knorr retired from the academic fleet and many of that ship's crew transferred to Neil Armstrong. (Photo by Ken Kostel, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
