The Roots of RAND Slam!

If you’re like us, you might have been left tossing and turning last night over the unsolved mystery surrounding the origins of RAND Slam!, the Senate Softball League team.
Yesterday, we scratched the office of Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) off the list of possibilities after his communications director tweeted out her surprise at the existence of a team incorporating her boss’s first name into their own.
After some deep digging, the mystery has been solved.
This afternoon, a representative from the RAND Corp.’s Washington, D.C., office confirmed via email that the wonkish nonprofit organization is indeed the team’s sponsor.
According to the email, the team is “excited” to be back on the field after a three-year hiatus.
