Wednesday night, women of the D.C. press corps took on female lawmakers in the 11th annual softball game.
This year, the competition raised $365,000 for a charity devoted to screening for cancer, fighting back, and helping survivors.
Lawmakers said the game is a nice break from politics-as-usual and helps build camaraderie on the field and across the aisle on Capitol Hill.
As for the game – for the fourth year in a row – the press cruised to victory. The Bad News Babes got the bats rolling early, and held off a Congressional comeback, winning 10-4.
Gretchen Frazee won M.V.P. for the press, while West Virginia Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV) took home the Congressional honor.
