PA-BGT: Capitol All-Stars Game Cancelled Because of Budget Stalemate

Softball-All-StarsThe field will be empty this year.

After two straight years of the Capitol All-Stars Game, there will not be an East-West softball contest in 2015.

The reason? The budget stalemate.

According to Jason Gottesman of PLS (who are one of the event’s organizers), the game that was scheduled for Sept. 28th has been cancelled.

There is still hope that the game will take place sometime in spring 2016 at Metro Bank Park.

In the past two years, the game has raised $175,000 for food banks throughout the commonwealth.

  1. They should just battle it out, whacking each other with baseball bats. Maybe the Dems can knock some sense into the GOP.

  2. Oh, the humanity…

    I guess this is what we get when the GOP Leadership goes away the whole summer without presenting a responsible budget.

  3. isn’t it, the human services are suffering because of Wolf, the first governor in 50 years to veto an entire budget. So he should be out there fundraising. If the legislators played the game, you and several other yahoos would be on here accusing them of wasting time.

  4. So, when human services are suffering due to the lack of a budget, it’s a good idea not to raise money for food banks?
