Per AEI’s Michael Pratt: “FERC defeated the defending champs AEI 13-7 in the Think Tank Softball League Championships in a game under the lights in a field by Pentagon City. Congrats to the winning team - over 40 teams are part of the league.”
FERC, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, is a pretty wonky-sounding name, but it still ain't no think tank.
Last year, American Enterprise Institute (AEI) did win the title, defeating the Roosevelt Institute's Roosevelt Rough Riders 17-15 in an extra-inning game.
The TTSL is a summer-time, co-ed think tank league in the Washington, DC area. The teams are mostly from area think tanks, but also include representation from a number of government agencies and private firms.
