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, they may be purchased for $10 at the door.
