Tickets on Sale for Annual Congressional Baseball Game
WASHINGTON — It’s that time of year again. Congressional baseball time that is.
Tickets are on sale for this year’s installment of the annual charity event, which is scheduled to be played at 7:05 p.m. on Wednesday, June 14 at Nationals Park.
Since 1909 the Congressional Baseball Game has been acknowledged as an important bipartisan event that enables members of Congress to start or solidify friendships away from the often-divided confines of Capitol Hill.
The game is also a fan favorite, drawing thousands each year to enjoy an evening of not-so-bad to pretty good baseball.
It was due to the popularity of the game itself that the event evolved into a foundation called Congressional Sports for Charity.
Established in 2016, Congressional Sports for Charity provides support to worthy and effective charities serving vulnerable children and families in the Washington, D.C., area.
These charities include the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Washington, the Washington Literacy Center and the Washington Nationals Philanthropies along with the United States Capitol Police Memorial Fund in gratitude to the officers who responded to the Republican practice shooting on June 14, 2017.
