Hardball: Reps. Murphy, Rooney clash on congressional diamond tonightby George Bennett | June 13th, 2013
Republicans hold a 38-to-36 advantage, with one tie, in the games. But Democrats have dominated since Louisiana Rep. Cedric Richmond, a former college player, took office in 2011 and brought his overpowering pitching to the game. Republicans are hoping to counter Richmond this year with freshman Rep. Ron DeSantis, R-Ponte Vedra Beach, who pitched in the 1991 Little League World Series and at Yale.
DeSantis, Rooney and Murphy are the only Floridians in the game.
Murphy can pitch and play center field for the Democrats. Rooney plays first base for the GOP squad.
