No Bones Broken in Wasserman Schultz's Return to Charity Softball Diamond


Less than a year after breaking her leg while sliding into second base during a charity softball game, Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz was back on the diamond, trying to outslug a team of Capitol Hill reporters. The congressional team lost, but at least it stayed injury-free. Proceeds went to fighting breast cancer, which has been a major issue for the West Broward congresswoman after she beat the disease last year.

Next year, let's raise the stakes. Assemble a congressional all-star team to knock the snot out of some oil executives. Heyward can pitch.
