U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., injured her hamstring during a congressional women's softball game.
The lawmaker was rounding the bases during the annual charity softball game when she tore her hamstring Wednesday night in Washington.
A representative for the Democratic congresswoman says she is on crutches and will be undergoing physical therapy for at least a couple of weeks.
Despite her injury, the female members of Congress went on to beat the female reporters in the charity game, winning 10-5. The event raised money for breast cancer research.
The congresswoman is in good spirits and has already resumed her schedule and duties.
