From Hardball to Softball: Lawmakers Play Ball After Budget Talks
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.
