Transcript for Republicans and Democrats come together for one of America's favorite pastimes
The game will go on tonight. Just as it has for more than a hundred years. ??? Take me out to the ballpark. Reporter: It's a 108-year-old tradition played by Democrats and Republicans, taking the field. It first began back in the summer of 1909. Woodrow Wilson ready for the game, standing behind the players. Very little has stopped these games, the great depression and the wars would get in between the game. Over the years, familiar faces and a familiar president. Speaker of the house, tip o'neil taking a swing. Both teams back on the field. They're all raising money for charity. More than a million already and sending a powerful message that country comes before politics, before division the players hoping to lead the way. We thank you for watching on a Thursday night. I'm David Muir. Hope to see you right back here tomorrow to finish out the week.
