Greg Steube hits rare out-of-the-park home run during Congressional Baseball Game

Rep. Greg Steube literally knocked one out of the park at the Congressional Baseball Game on Wednesday. Watch video here.

The Florida Republican’s slam, which hit the bleachers two rows back, was the first out-of-the-park homer at a Congressional Baseball Game in over 40 years, the last time being when former Rep. Ron Paul did so in 1979.

Steube, an Iraq War veteran , is the first congressman to hit the ball out of a Major League Baseball park, as the annual game wasn’t held at Nationals Park, home of the Washington Nationals baseball team, until 2009.

Steube celebrated with a leisurely trot back to home base, where he was swarmed by his teammates. His hit helped secure the Republicans’ narrow 13-12 victory over their Democratic colleagues, marking only the third victory for the GOP during the last 13 annual contests to raise money for charity. Steube was also the Republicans’ starting pitcher, during which he wore a “Save America” cap signed by former President Donald Trump.

President Joe Biden attended the game, where he was greeted with a mix of cheers and boos.
