Congressional Baseball Players to Wear Colors of Scalise's Favorite Team

House Majority Whip Rep. Steve Scalise on Capitol Hill in 2015

Trump and his wife, Melania, visited Scalise in the hospital in the wake of the shooting, writing on Twitter, "Just left hospital".

"The Congressional Baseball Game has never been about Republicans against Democrats", said Rep. Pete Aguilar, D-Calif., in an opinion piece he wrote for CNN. "We've had a very, very divided country for many years, and I have a feeling that Steve has made a great sacrifice, but there could be some unity being brought to our country".

"How dare they say such a thing?" After Wednesday's shooting, in which two members of the Capitol Police force were wounded, the Capitol Police Memorial Fund was added to the list of this year's beneficiaries. According to a hospital statement, Wednesday, the bullet had fractured bones in his hip and torn through internal organ, and Scalise, had been receiving multiple units of blood transfusion.

Presidents have shown up at the annual Republicans vs. Democrats tilt, and press secretary Sean Spicer indicated Trump wanted to attend following Wednesday morning's shooting at the GOP team's practice session in Alexandria, Va. House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., and four others were wounded by a 66-year-old IL man who appears to have been a staunch critic of Trump and Republicans. Scalise was shot Wednesday, June 14, 2017, at a congressional baseball practice in Alexandria, Va.

Scalise was fielding ground balls at second base Wednesday when he was shot at a practice for an annual Republicans-Democrats baseball game.

Earlier Thursday, Republican lawmakers met behind closed doors to share reflections and pray. Hodgkinson rarely joined in the political discussions often set off by the television in the room and never showed any signs that he was troubled, Euille said.

He said Democrats probably contributed to Hodgkinson "believing he was a patriot trying to protect Americans" from Republicans.

Speaking on the House floor, Rep. Glenn Thompson, R-Pa., issued a call to "replace the hateful rhetoric and resistance with respect". "We said it was Republicans and he kind of started walking to the field", U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis told Fox Business Network. But conservatives say they are under physical threat too. "How dare they", the minority leader said.

The GOP lawmakers' team was taking batting practice when gunshots rang out and chaos erupted.

Rep. Cedric Richmond, the Democrats' star player, said he planned to stop by the hospital to check on Scalise before heading to the stadium.

"After taking dollar bills out of his wallet, [resident Mike Quinn] attempted to shove them into Cramer's suit pocket. pushing him in the process while saying his money could go toward the medical expenses of the woman's child", the Tribune reports.

"I think anybody that ever played baseball, the dream was to play in a major league stadium", Richmond said past year.
