The Congressional Women's Softball Team and its archrival, The Bad News Babes, are out with their rosters about a month ahead of the Congressional Women's Softball Game. Both teams feature 20 players. The member team will have strong delegations from Florida and Arizona. The press team boasts strong contingents from CNN, NBC News and The New York Times, and, of course, Roll Call.
Game day is June 18, and it benefits The Young Survival Coalition , a breast cancer charity.
The big takeaway are the rookies. Rep. Katherine M. Clark, D-Mass., joined the team after her December special election win , along with Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler, R-Wash.
Similarly, The Bad News Babes added ABC Deputy Bureau Chief Sara Just and The New York Times' Carolyn Ryan to its own roster.
