Wasserman Schultz warms up for softball game

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) on Tuesday let her Twitter followers know that she is going to be ready to take to the diamond. 

The lawmaker tweeted that she is preparing for the Congressional Women's Softball Game:

Started practice this a.m. for our 2nd annual Congressional Women's Softball Game 2 raise $ and breast cancer awareness for younger women.

Wasserman Schultz, who co-hosts the charity event, is a breast cancer survivor herself and has been very outspoken on awareness and treatment of the disease.

The softball game will take place in June. It follows the Congressional Hockey Game, which took place last week and benefited a local Washington, D.C. hockey club for inner-city youth.
