While Congress attempts to figure its stuff out for 2020 within the next five days, at least one decision involving its members has been agreed upon: The date for next year’s Congressional Baseball Game.

The annual game for charity, which pits Democratic and Republican members of Congress against each other on the baseball field, is poised to take place June 10 at Nationals Park, according to an Instagram post.

“We are excited to announce the date of next year’s Congressional Baseball Game for Charity!” reads the Monday announcement. “Please mark your [calendar emoji]!!”

The Congressional Baseball Game has become a popular staple at Nats Park, and after the Washington Nationals’ glorious 2019 season, we’re assuming a spot on the park’s event calendar is becoming more competitive.

A spokeswoman for the Congressional Baseball Game did not immediately respond to HOH’s request for comment, although Rep. Mark Walker appears to “like” the plan so far.
