Wells Fargo at bat

Wells Fargo & Co. Express baseball team.  Denver, 1910sSummertime is in full swing, and we are about half way through the official 2014 Major League Baseball season. One of the interesting things about banks from across the country is that many of them have had their own baseball teams. In the Wells Fargo Corporate Archives we often come across great images of the employee teams, including this one from our old express office in Denver. Here are a few baseball teams from Wells Fargo’s past I want to share with you.

Having grown up in Los Angeles, baseball games mean Dodger stadium, with Dodger dogs and peanuts. This is hard to admit now that I live in San Francisco—the Giants and the Dodgers have a notorious rivalry!

Here’s to fun summertime pastimes—what are some of your favorite ways to enjoy the sunny season?
