Some female lawmakers and some of the female journalists who cover them square off tonight in one of the newest Capitol Hill traditions, the Congressional Women’s Softball Game.

Proceeds from the fourth annual game will benefit the Young Survival Coalition, a nonprofit organization dedicated to young women affected by breast cancer. As The Post’s Emily Heil first noted, it’s a cause quite literally near the hearts of the event’s organizers, including breast cancer survivor Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) — who broke her leg in the inaugural game while sliding into second base.

The game will be played tonight at 7 p.m. at the Watkins Recreation Center on 12th Street, SE, near the Eastern Market/Potomac Avenue Metro stop. If you didn’t already buy a ticket at congwomensoftball.org, they may be purchased for $10 at the door.
