This trophy was awarded to the Republican team at the 2005 Congressional Baseball Game, when they swept a best-of-five game series with a 19-10 victory over the Democrats. Congressman Mike Oxley, the GOP’s manager, led his team to two trophy series victories, and remarked that the trophy "could have been 200 pounds, it would have felt light, because we were always so excited."
