Townhall.com Founder Knocks Progressives Out of Softball Tourney
Posted by: Garrett Murch
The softball team of center-right think tank, the Heritage Foundation, eliminated the team of liberal-progressive advocacy group, Center for American Progress (CAP), from the D.C. Think Tank League softball tournament on Monday night with a 16-11 victory.
Heritage’s Capitalist Tools led from the third inning on. Previously undefeated CAP rallied in the bottom of the sixth, closing an 11-run deficit to 3.
Heritage, which founded Townhall.com in 1995, responded with two runs in the top of the seventh to enter the bottom of the final inning with a 5-run lead. CAP’s hopes were ultimately dashed, though, when a 6-3 double play followed by a 4-3 groundout ended both the game and CAP’s season.
Heritage now moves on to the quarter finals, while team CAP may be hauling out the hacky sacks a little sooner than hoped.
