Alex Rodriguez took a tour of the U.S. Capitol before Wednesday's Nationals-Yankees game
The Yankees are in Washington D.C. this week for an Interleague series against the Nationals (The Nats took Game 1 on a walkoff). So, as if he were a sixth-grader on a class trip, Alex Rodriguez toured the United States Capitol building on Wednesday afternoon.
He even got a glimpse of how the legislative sausage is made, popping in on a meeting of the House Trade Promotion Authority.

The Capitol tour comes a day after Rodriguez visited Georgetown University.

The Hill reports that Rodriguez had a chat with House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, who might have been "seeking a few tips in advance of next month's Congressional Baseball Game" -- that was probably just a joke from the Congressman's spokesman, though the Democrats have won the past six games.
