Congressional Baseball Game raising money for Capitol Police fund

USA Today: 'It's time to destroy Trump & Co.': Scalise shooter raged on Facebook - "The 66-year-old IL man who opened fire early Wednesday on members of Congress practicing for a charity baseball game had raged against President Trump and once singled out House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, who was wounded in the attack". He was listed in critical condition Wednesday night at a Washington hospital, which said he will require several more operations. "The bullet traveled across his pelvis, fracturing bones, injuring internal organs and causing severe bleeding", the statement said.

The hospital where Rep. Steve Scalise is recuperating from a gunshot wound says he "remains in critical condition, but has improved in the last 24 hours". The hospital did not immediately provide an update, but lawmakers were informed at a meeting Thursday morning that Scalise was in surgery.

Steve Scalise faces a "much more difficult" struggle to recover from his gunshot wound than first thought, U.S. president Donald Trump has said.

President Trump delivered a videotaped statement, saying, "we will not be intimidated. the game will go on".

He says: "Steve in his own way may have brought some unity to our long-divided country".

Rep. Joe Barton, R-Texas, and Rep. Mike Doyle, D-Pa., managers of the two congressional baseball teams, talk Wednesday with Judy Woodruff about the shooting and the game. But a congressional aide-turned-lobbyist, Matt Mika, was shot multiple times and critically injured, and he remained hospitalized.

He's also saluting the Capitol police officers injured in the attack on a Republican Congressional baseball practice. President Donald Trump walks to his motorcade vehicle after visiting MedStar Washington Hospital Center in Washington, Wednesday, June 14, 2017, where House Majority Leader Steve Scalise of La. was taken after being.

The announcement comes as the congressional charity baseball game, for which Scalise and his Republican colleagues had been practicing at the time of the shooting, continues as planned. "I literally ran for my life and jumped in the dugout into Congressman Williams' arms", he said.

The game is an annual event that allows Democrats and Republicans to put aside their differences for a night, and take things from the Capitol to the Nationals Park.

In the history of the contest, Republicans and Democrats each have won 39 games with one tie. "Deep, dark rumors were in circulation that "ringers" would be introduced, but when they lined up at 4 o'clock the nine republicans were stalwart, grand old party men, while the democrats were of the pure Jeffersonian strain".

As Majority Whip - he's the third highest ranking republican in the house. Congressmen gathered at second base, where Scalise was standing when he was wounded.

The only fatality was the gunman, James Hodgkinson, 66, of Belleville, Ill., who was shot by Capitol Hill police officers who were at the Virginia ball field to protect Scalise because of his leadership post.
