Congressional baseball game video

Late-inning pitching has been an issue on more than one occasion in recent years. It happened again Wednesday night. According to The Hill, a 4-4 game between Congressional Democrats and Republicans turned into a rout when Rep. John Shimkus (R-Ill.) was battered for nine runs in the sixth inning. The Dems won, 13-5.

But I don't care about the final score. I care about middle-aged people in tight uniforms falling down. It happens at least twice on this video: once on a failed attempt by a catcher to nab a pop-up, and once on some sort of mad scramble back to first base.

There's also an excellent hit-by-pitch.

I'm unable to identify any of these people by their on-field exploits, but I sure do enjoy watching them.

Did Congress outdraw the Nats?

They would have if they had sold tix for all sections (they only opened the sections around home plate). Catcher for the Rs was Todd Platts (Pa).

You would think that a bunch of millionaires could afford to make uniforms.
