If the congressional gig does not work, the Washington Nationals may be able to use Rep. Greg Steube.
As Biden greeted Steube’s GOP team in a home camp at Nationals Park in the middle of an ongoing match about the end of two bills on Capitol Hill, the second-term lawyer turned the first step down for the third inning from Rep. Pete Aguilar (D-Calif.) And then sent deep into the left field.
When the ball hit the railing in front of the first row of stands and ricocheted to the field, Steube got into a Kirk Gibson-style trot trot around the bases. He was congratulated by the Democratic delegation he met before being hugged by his red-clad colleagues as he crossed the plate.
Steube is the first law judge to remove the fence at Nationals Park since the game was launched in 2008. Attorney Ron Paul (R-Texas) is thought to have been the first lawyer to beat the house outside the park. in the play, performing it in 1979 in Alexandria, Va. In 1997, Rep. John Shimkus (R-Ill.) Ransacked his house to escape the evil log at Prince George’s Stadium in Bowie, Md.
In addition to demonstrating his prowess on the plate, Steube was also the first GOP pitcher – taking the soldier in a red “Save America” bag signed by former President Donald Trump – and worked through 5 2/3 innings and one hundred and twenty before heading to the third base.
Representative August Pfluger (R-Texas) managed to score the last four when GOP held for 13-12, seven-inning to win, their first since 2016. The last exit was recorded by – who else? – Steube, who grabbed a pop-up from Rep’s bed. Greg Stanton (D-Ariz.) By tying the second run to secure a Republican victory.
