People are always amazed at how many warm friendships I have across the political aisle.
A big reason is sports. When you have fun competition playing basketball or paddleball or golf, it builds relationships. There is no better example of Democrats and Republicans coming together than the annual Congressional Baseball Game, held every year since 1909.
This post gathers together some historical video clips, photos, and sound recordings of my involvement with the Congressional Baseball Game. I hope you enjoy watching and listening as much as I did playing and getting to know some wonderful people.
