The 2017 Congressional Baseball Game happened yesterday, an annual tradition which seems more important then ever.
The Democrats won this year, who won 11-2 over the Republicans.
A record breaking 24,959 tickets were sold, while over a million dollars were raised for the Congressional Sports for Charity.
The game became a tribute to House Majority Whip Steve Scalise who was shot by a gunmen during a congressional baseball practice.
Both sides had Louisiana State University hats to represent Scalise who is a politician in Louisiana.
