On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we’d like to invite you to participate in one of Capitol Hill’s best bipartisan traditions: the 2017 Congressional Baseball Game for Charity.
The Congressional Baseball Game for Charity is a Capitol Hill tradition going back over 50 years. Members of Congress take a step back from their differences and enjoy one of America’s most cherished pastimes. We hope you’ll get involved.
Batting practices are already under way for Republicans and Democrats. Staffers are gearing up to come out and cheer for their side. Last year, more than 9,000 fans turned out, generating some of the most exciting moments yet in Congressional baseball history.
This year, we’re returning to Nationals Park on Thursday, June 15th at 7:05pm. As part of our tradition, we’ll have pre-game festivities at the ballpark and presentation of the trophy on the field after the last out.
The trophy may or may not change hands, but the real winners are the Washington Literacy Center, The Washington Nationals Dream Foundation and the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Washington. In 2016, we raised a total of over $500,000 for the charities and we hope that in 2017 we can raise even more.
If you would like to participate, or have any questions, please contact Haley Feaster at (703) 683-7500 or via email at email@example.com
