Members Beat Babes in Congressional Women’s Softball Game (Video)
After a tough loss last year, the women of Congress reclaimed the pink trophy Wednesday in the 6th Annual Congressional Women’s Softball Game, beating the female journalist team, the Bad News Babes, 10-5.
The lawmakers and journalists faced off on a muggy evening at the Watkins Recreation Center to compete in the annual game, which benefits the Young Survival Coalition, a breast cancer charity.
Scores of Hill staffers, journalists and members of Congress came out to cheer for their favorite players, with many holding signs and donning campaign T-shirts to show their support. But the politics of the moment still managed to make an appearance on the field. Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., stopped by the emcees’ tent with Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., joking that she couldn’t vote for him in Thursday’s election for House majority leader.
