Washington (CNN) – The Internal Revenue Service's softball team, the "Cheetahs," were scheduled to play Republican Senator John Cornyn's softball on Friday. The Cheetah's backed out.
"We contacted them to confirm our game which was scheduled for tomorrow night, and they said they needed to reschedule," Cornyn's Press Secretary Drew Brandewie said. "Guess they needed an extension."
The IRS has been under a harsh spotlight since it disclosed targeting of tea party and other conservative groups for extra scrutiny last Friday.
Cornyn's team, the "RBIs of Texas," were scheduled to play the IRS in what would have been their first game of season.
According to Minority Whip Cornyn's Facebook page, no makeup date has been announced.
