Ernst, Republicans Swing for the Fences and Score a GOP Victory at Congressional Baseball Game

WASHINGTON – Yesterday, U.S. Senator Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) competed in the annual Congressional Baseball Game. The GOP team defended their champion title for the fourth year in a row and routed Democrats 31-11 at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C.

Ernst was one of six women on the field and one of two senators on the Republican team. She served as a pinch hitter for Team GOP and scored a run after Democrats walked her. The Iowa delegation showed up in full force with Reps. Randy Feenstra (R-Iowa) and Mariannette Miller-Meeks (R-Iowa) playing alongside Ernst.

“Nationals Park is no Field of Dreams, but Reps. Feenstra and Miller-Meeks and I still brought our A-game to represent Iowa last night and help Team GOP deliver another victory,” said Ernst. “I look forward to playing in the Congressional Baseball Game every year, and raising funds for deserving local charities makes it even better.”


The Congressional Baseball Game brings policymakers from across the aisle together to enjoy America’s pastime and raise funds for more than 45 local charities, including the Washington Literacy Center and the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Washington.
