MADISON, Wis.—July 25, 2022—On July 28, Republicans face Democrats in the Congressional Baseball Game at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C. The bipartisan baseball contest has taken place annually since 1909. WPS Military and Veterans Health, a division of WPS Health Solutions based in Madison, is an All-Star sponsor of the event, which is hosted by Congressional Sports for Charity.
