When the Washington Nationals’ pitcher Max Scherzer and his wife wanted a tour of the Capitol, they called up their good friends: John McCain and Jeff Flake.
The baseball player and Erica May-Scherzer live in Arizona for part of the year and met up with the state’s Senators for lunch followed by a tour.
His Major League Baseball debut, in 2008, was for the Arizona Diamondbacks. On the visit, he tweeted a photograph from the Speaker’s Balcony with McCain and Flake.

May-Scherzer responded to Roll Call photographer Tom Williams’ photograph on twitter and said, “I’m like a kid in a candy store! #PoliticalJunkie.”
