NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — WFAN co-hosts Boomer Esiason and Craig Carton gave New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie a break from budget showdowns for the chance to hit one out of the park.
The governor, a frequent guest on the “Boomer & Carton” show, participated in the fourth annual Bombers Boomer Broadway Softball Classic on Monday at Yankee Stadium against a long list of sports greats.
Wearing No. 55, in honor of being the 55th governor of New Jersey, Christie caught the ball to make a crucial out at third base in the seventh inning with the bases loaded and his team went on to eke out a 7-6 win.

It was the latest, lighthearted showing of Christie’s maneuverability and malleability in recent weeks, punctuated by his now-famous dancing routine on the “Tonight Show,” CBS 2’s Scott Rapoport reported.
