Florida Rep. Greg Steube is a stud. Steube (R-Fla.), the GOP opposing pitcher, briefly drew focus off President Biden during Wednesday night’s Congressional Baseball Game by hitting a rare out-of-the-park home run in the Democrat vs. Republican grudge match.

Steube broke into a slow trot around the bases. The Shohei Ohtani-esque phenom was congratulated by Democratic fielders as he rounded the bases before being mobbed by his red-clad teammates as he crossed the plate.

Steube is the first lawmaker to clear the fence at Nationals Park since the game was moved there in 2008.

In addition to showing off his batting chops, Steube was also the GOP’s starting pitcher. He took to the mound in a red “Save America” hat signed by former President Donald Trump and hurled pitches through 5 2/3 innings and 120 pitches before moving to third base.
