Congressional Baseball Managers Joe L. Barton and Mike Doyle interrupted a series of votes Wednesday to once again bring the coveted Roll Call trophy to the House chamber, marking the Democrats seventh-straight victory over the Republicans in the 54th Annual Roll Call Congressional Baseball Game earlier this month. With the victory, Democrats now lead the all-time series by one game. In a break from decorum, the team managers addressed not only one another, but addressed other players by their first name on the floor. Nearly 10,000 fans attended the June 11 game, raising more than $300,000 for charity, according to Doyle.
