Hill baseball pregame: Twitter smack talk


  1. Thrilled that the Congressional Baseball Game is still on despite impending severe weather scheduled to hit Washington, Dems and the GOP have taken to Twitter for pre-game boasting and trash talking.

    Republicans kicked off the day Thursday by hitting the Democrats for not having a team Twitter, and Democrats quickly fired back with practice photos from the morning.

  2. Players were a bit nervous that the game, scheduled to begin at 7:05 p.m. at Nationals Park, might be called off because of rain.

  3. But, much to the teams’ relief, the game is still a go-ahead. Let the trash talking continue:

  4. Expected GOP star Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.), the team’s best hope against the pitching of Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-La.), has yet to weigh in on the Twitter talk.
