RollCall.com supposedly have it on their site, but can't seem to

access it now, for some reason: http://www.RollCall.com/baseball

google video search.

Update: the site seems to be working, now. and the 'play' button was for their gallery section's slideshow, not video. I'll update, when and if any videos of the induction ceremony becomes available.

Actually, didn't want to give RollCall any traffic as they ran the 'double dipped on flightbooking' smear story during this election cycle against the Doc, but what the hell:

Home Run Lands Ron Paul in Hall of Fame
Back in 1979, Rep. Ron Paul hit what is believed to be the first home run during a Congressional Baseball Game.

There are Hall of Famers like Hank Aaron, who piled up massive numbers over long careers. And there are Hall of Famers like Bill Mazeroski, who had nice careers but earned their enshrinement based on singular moments. This year’s CQ Roll Call Congressional Baseball Hall of Fame inductee falls into the latter category.

In 1979, Rep. Ron Paul crushed a slow curveball from then-Rep. Ron Mottl that cleared the left-field wall just to the right of the 310-foot mark in Alexandria’s Four Mile Run Park. The Texas Republican is believed to be the first person to hit one out of the park during a Congressional Baseball Game.

It even had a bit of “The Natural” in it. Roll Call reported that when Paul, whose only pre-Congressional baseball experience derived from the sandlots of his youth, came to bat in the sixth inning, his knees were “swabbed in yards of bandages, a precaution after operations over the years.”
