SNAPSHOT: GOP Rep Smashes Home Run at Congressional Baseball Game

The Republicans edged out the Democrats 13-12 at the annual Congressional Baseball Game Wednesday, buoyed by a home run blast from Rep. Greg Steube.

THE MOMENT

Steube, R-Fl., hit the solo homer off Rep. Pete Aguilar, D-Calif., in the bottom of the third inning at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C.

As the ball bounced off the left-field railing and back onto the field, Steube slowed his circumambulation of the bases to a trot and held up his hand in triumph.

THE RECORD BOOKS

The last lawmaker to hit an out-of-the-park home run in the Congressional Baseball Game was then-Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, in 1979.

  • But unlike Steube’s victorious GOP, Paul’s squad lost to the Democrats 7-3.

MEANWHILE

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi appeared distracted during Wednesday’s game, what with her party imploding as she tries to push through trillions of dollars in new spending.
