WASHINGTON D.C. — The annual Congressional Baseball Game for Charity is on Wednesday, June 14 in Washington, D.C. Republicans and Democrats face off in the annual charity baseball game that helps raise money for local D.C. charities. Nationals Park in D.C. once again will host the event on Wednesday night at 6:05 p.m.
Per the Congressional Baseball Game’s website, “Since 1909, the Congressional Baseball Game has been an annual bipartisan event beloved by all and enjoyed by thousands. Members of the United States Congress from each party solidify friendships off the floor and on the field. Over the last century, the Congressional Baseball Game’s popularity has contributed to its evolution into a foundation called Congressional Sports for Charity.”
“Created in 2016, Congressional Sports for Charity provides support to worthy and effective charities serving vulnerable children and families in the Washington, DC, 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 brave officers at the Republican practice shooting on June 14, 2017.”
San Angelo’s own August Pfluger pitched in last year's game for the Republicans against the Democrats. The Republicans dominated the game, winning 10-0. In 2021, he pitched the final inning, where the Republicans defeated the Democrats 13-12. Here’s a video of the Congressman closing out the game for the Republicans.
The game will be televised on Wednesday on C-SPAN. Anyone and everyone is welcome to watch the game. Tickets are still available for sale.
