US Congressional Baseball Game played after shooting

Players usually sport the uniform of their home states and districts, although Thursday they donned Louisiana State University uniforms as a tribute to Scalise, who remains in critical condition after being shot in the hip. Richmond, who plays for the Democratic team, said he had visited the hospital multiple times. She called for increasing the budget for the Capitol Police force, so they'll just have a lot more resources to deal with threats as they arise. "I had no idea this was going to happen, and I don't know what to say about it".

According to the House of Representatives" Office of the Historian, the Boston Daily Globe wrote of that first, much more casual congressional baseball game: "The game was brewing for weeks and the members of the house were keyed up a high pitch of enthusiasm.

Despite the hospital's comment about Scalise's progress, "critical condition" is still defined by the American Hospital Association as a state in which vital signs are unstable and in which "indicators are unfavorable".

Republicans and Democrats joined in a spirited, friendly rivalry Thursday at their annual Congressional Baseball game, many fresh from the penetrating horror of the ballfield shooting rampage a day earlier and all playing in honor of their grievously wounded colleague. And he had this really emotional moment talking about the moment that they saw each other after the shooting. In the immediate aftermath Wednesday the extent of his injuries was not widely known.

James Hodgkinson opened fire and injured five people including Majority Whip Steve Scalise.

Earlier Thursday, Republican lawmakers met behind closed doors to share reflections and pray.

Yet politics was never far off. Richard Blumenthal said. "Worst because of this nightmarish shooting but the best because it's brought us together as adversity sometimes does". She noted that she has received numerous threats herself over the years, and is now the target of millions of dollars in negative ads in a House district in Georgia where a hard-fought special election will take place next week.

Pelosi noted that Trump resorted to violent language at times on the campaign trail, and she accused Republicans of "sanctimony" in seeking to place blame on the left.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with Congressman Steve Scalise today", LSU baseball coach Paul Mainieri said before the team left for Omaha.

With 39 wins each for the Democratic and Republican teams and a tied game between them, the focus of Thursday evening's baseball game was supposed to be on who would finally break the partisan tie.

One day after Republicans practicing in Alexandria, Va., for the annual charity event were attacked by a gunman, those playing and watching felt unified and tired, defiant and drained, still grappling with what had happened.

Special agent David Bailey was injured in the attack on Wednesday.

The man's apparent Facebook page included strong criticism of Republicans and the Trump administration. Lawmakers, including many of those who were at the practice, praised the decision.

Texas Rep. Mike Conaway described what sounded like an explosion, then lawmakers scattering off the field as police roamed in search of the gunman and engaged him. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., said. Two lawmakers who were leaving practice when they encountered Hodgkinson before the shooting said they believe he was targeting Republicans. You know, this is an active and ongoing discussion that the Capitol Police are having with lawmakers about how they can feel safe when they're off campus, not in the Capitol and when they're back at home.
