Forget fantasy football, there’s a new way to compete in sports while sitting on your couch with your laptop and scarfing pizza.
Roll Call has started its own fantasy softball league to correspond with the fifth annual Congressional Women’s Softball Game, which pits women of the Washington Press Corps against congresswomen to raise money for Young Survival Coalition, an organization that aids young women with breast cancer.
The Fantasy Softball Challenge is open to the public and entrants pick nine players from the rosters of the two teams. Points are earned based on how the players do at bat. The winner (there will only be one) will win a $150 gift card to The 201 Bar.
The best part? It’s free! The contest is open until Wednesday at 5 p.m., shortly before the game starts.
Contestants can enter the contest and purchase tickets to the game here.
