National Press Club

It's nearly time to play ball with the National Press Club softball team

March 13, 2018 | By Jonathan D. Salant |

The Metropolitan Media Softball League season is just around the corner, so there's still time to play on the National Press Club team and take on teams such as CNN, The Washington Post and National Public Radio.

The co-ed team plays doubleheaders every Saturday morning on fields in Montgomery County from April to June, with playoffs in July. Last year, the Club made it to the semifinals before falling.

The Club supplies shirts, bats and balls. You need to bring your own glove, but one of your teammates could lend you one if you don't have one.

Don't have a car? No problem; we can try to find you a ride or pick you up at a Metro station near the field.

Come join your fellow Club members in America's pastime. For more information or to join the roster, contact coach Clay Kaufman at
