In a twist of events, Republican and Democratic leaders are rumored to be in talks with Major Baseball League executives to play publicly open games next season, according to the Non-Associated Press. The $525 million contract includes a merchandising and marketing budget. Televised games are expected to begin next April.
Bipartisan support for competition with other MLB teams seems to be strong as well. Some members of Congress have expressed their gratitude they can be closer to the general public. A few have even said the deal will enable them to do more than just govern, but also be more in line with American culture.
Nationals Stadium will be the Congressional home field. Congressional games are not expected to interfere with any games played in the MLB roster.
One report even suggested the soon to be formed Congressional League may draft one or two existing baseball players onto its team.
