(CNN) - The Washington Nationals may have been on the road Tuesday night but baseball fans were able to get their fix by two teams who were in a league of their own.

On this humid June evening, members of Congress and members of the media oiled up their gloves and laced up their spikes to do battle in the second annual Congressional women's softball game.

Reps. Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Jo Ann Emerson and Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand and Lisa Murkowski captained the congresspersons team. Leading the members of the Capitol Hill press were CNN's Dana Bash and Shailagh Murray of the Washington Post.

An overflow crowd in excess of three hundred enthusiastic fans, mostly Capitol Hill staffers and interns, cheered on the teams at Guy Mason Field in Northwest Washington.  But there were some DC luminaries in the ballpark, including Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Reps. John Boehner and Eric Cantor.
