MERRIMACK — New Hampshire House Democrat and Republican lawmakers will take to the softball diamond on Saturday at 11 a.m. when they meet in the Annual Legislative Softball Classic at the Anheuser-Busch Athletic Complex in Merrimack.

The event is being sponsored by the Veterans Interest Caucus and all proceeds will go to Manchester’s Liberty House, which assists homeless veterans.

The seven-inning contest is modeled in part on Washington, D.C.’s, annual Congressional Baseball Game.

Jim Rivers, House communications director and longtime sportscaster, will host the game and do the play by play, including interviews with special guests each inning.

The game will be taped for broadcast by the YCN network on Veterans Day, Nov. 11. For more information, visit
