After partisan debating over the budget, Democrats and Republicans came together in America's pastime.
Lawmakers put aside partisan differences to play softball. Forget Republicans versus Democrats; this match pits Senate against the House.
Rep. Anthony DeLuca, a Democrat from Chicago Heights, was named Most Valuable Player for the House. DeLuca says the annual game is a way for lawmakers to become teammates rather than opponents.
"There's a lot of camaraderie. It's good," he said. "People that don't normally talk to each other are talking, and it's good for that."
The House won the game 16 to 10.
