Congressional Democrats handed Republicans a stinging 22-0 shutout during the annual Congressional Baseball Game for Charity at the Washington Nationals Park in Washington, D.C. on June 13. The game marked the 52nd edition of the modern version of the game, amounting to major bragging rights in the halls of Congress. The game is a serious affair. The balls are hard, and practices begin months in advance. New Orleans Democrat Cedric Richmond again repeated his past domination of Republican bats, this year pitching a three-hit complete game shutout. Richmond also went 4-for-4 at the plate, including a 320-foot triple to left field. The Democrats were flawless in the field, committing no errors, compared to five errors for the Republicans.
