U.S. Rep. Dennis Ross is part of the starting lineup for the 2014 annual Congressional Baseball Game for charity at Nationals Park in Washington D.C.
The two-term Lakeland Republican will be batting fifth.
A match between Republicans and Democrats since 1909, the Congressional Baseball Game is the only annual partisan showdown, with only a few interruptions, where Senate and House members can “settle scores and solidify friendships” (according to the website) off the floor of Congress and on the field of play.
Players typically sport uniforms from their home states and districts for a game that has evolved over the past century into a fundraiser for two DC area charities: The Washington Literacy Council, and The Boys and Girls Club of Greater Washington.
This 2014 Congressional Baseball game will be broadcast live nationwide on Sirius/XM’s POTUS Channel – 124 and online at www.federalnewsradio.com.
