Congresswomen, Female Press Corps To Swing Bats Tonight

June 20, 2012

Congresswomen and the ladies of the Washington press corps will go head-to-head in tonight's fourth annual Congressional Women's Softball Game, where lawmaking and reporting skills will  be less pertinent than who can snag a fly ball caught in the sun.

Leading the Congressional women's team are captains Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H., Rep. Jo Ann Emerson, R-Mo., Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., and Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla. On the press side, captains include CNN's Dana Bash, Politico's Carrie Budoff Brown, CNN's Brianna Keilar, Roll Call's Abby Livingston and ABC News' Amy Walter.

Sure, it'll be a zillion degrees in Washington, but these members and reporters will be playing for a good cause. Tickets cost $10 with proceeds benefiting the Young Survivors Coalition, a nonprofit that helps young women diagnosed with breast cancer .

Check back tomorrow morning, where the Alley will have a photo gallery showing the players in all their glory, and follow @ElaheIzadi on Twitter for updates during the game. The fun kicks off at 7 p.m.
