The "Cedric Richmond Show" was bringing the heat Wednesday morning in preparation for the 51st Annual Roll Call Congressional Baseball Game, scheduled for June 28 at Nationals Park. Last year the Democrats had a secret weapon in Richmond’s arm and bat. This year the Republicans will need to best the Louisiana hurler if they hope to capture the coveted Roll Call trophy.

Each year since 1990, CQ Roll Call has reviewed the financial disclosures of all 541 senators, representatives and delegates to determine the 50 richest members of Congress. This year's report, derived from forms covering the calendar year 2012, shows it took a net worth of $6.67 million to crack the exclusive club.
