Congressional Baseball Game Ticket Sales Soar after Shooting

The Congressional Baseball Game has become the hottest ticket in D.C. Thursday as ticket sales started selling at a rate of 500 per hour the morning after a left-wing nutjob shot a Congressman, an aide, a Capitol Police officer and a lobbyist.

By lunch on Thursday, more than 18,000 tickets had been sold putting and donations were coming in at a much higher rate than last year. The game’s organizers say that they could raise more than $1 million, far above the $650,000 they had estimated.

Last year’s game between Democrats and Republicans raised $500,000, but the number of tickets sold was not immediately available.

Proceeds from the game will go to the D.C. area Boys & Girls Clubs, Washington Literary Center, Washington Nationals Dream Foundation, and the Capitol Police Memorial Fund.

A pre-game concert will begin at 5:30 PM EDT just as the gates open.

The game will air on all national networks and C-SPAN with pre-game beginning at 6:30 PM Eastern and first pitch is scheduled for 7:05 PM.

A starting lineup has not yet been announced, but here are the full rosters for the Democrats and Republicans:
