Senators Bob Casey and Pat Toomey faced off on Tuesday evening, but not on the floor of the U.S. Senate.
The two, in the spirit of Pennsylvania tradition, led opposing softball teams in a game played on the National Mall in front of the Capitol in DC, the Philadelphia Inquirer’s CapitolInq blog reports.
The teams consisted of staffers, aides, friends and family, including Toomey’s son, Patrick III.
Casey’s team, “Scrantonicity” (a nod to Kevin’s band in ‘The Office’), dominated the Republican’s team, “Hit It Toomey”, in a 20-10 victory. It’s the first time Casey’s team has won. Team Toomey took the 2011 and 2012 matchups.
