The Congressional Baseball Game for Charity

Thank you for your interest in the Congressional Baseball Game for Charity. This year's event was Thursday, June 14. Please check back in 2019 for more information on next year's Congressional Baseball Game.

Since 1909, Senate and House members from both parties have met to settle the score and solidify friendships on the baseball diamond. The Congressional Baseball Game's increasing popularity over the last century has transformed the event into a major fundraiser for DC area charities - some of the charities that have benefited in recent years include The Washington Literacy Center, The Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Washington, the United States Capitol Police Memorial Fund, and the Washington Nationals Dream Foundation. Members typically sport the uniform of a college or professional baseball team from their home state or district and the game is a fun event for all participating members, their staffs, political junkies, and baseball fans.
