Women rep­re­sent in char­ity base­ball game

Los Angeles Times - - ESSENTIAL POLITICS - — Sarah D. Wire

Reps. Nanette Bar­ragán (D-San Pedro) and Linda Sanchez (D-Whit­tier) were the only two women who played in the Con­gres­sional Base­ball Game on Thurs­day.

The Democrats won 11-2, with Bar­ragán bat­ting in a run­ner in the sixth in­ning. Both women seemed to be fan favorites at the an­nual char­ity game, played a day after a GOP con­gress­man and three oth­ers were shot.

“Ev­ery kid who plays in Lit­tle League, in­clud­ing me, dreams of the op­por­tu­nity to play ball on a big league field,” Bar­ragán said.
