Play ball! GOP, Dems to battle as 1 - Team Scalise

Irune Rengel | 18 Junio, 2017, 04:54

"The congressman's status remains critical", Jack Sava, director of trauma at MedStar Washington Hospital Center.

Congressional Democrats and Republicans put aside their political differences Thursday to play in the traditional Congressional Baseball Game a day after a horrific shooting left Louisiana Rep. Steve Scalise and others wounded.

Tickets for the game are $10 and can be bought online here, but even if you can't make the trek to Nationals Park in Washington, DC, you can still watch members of Congress play America's favorite pastime. They chose to have the coveted Roll Call Trophy that goes to the victor sent to Scalise's office. "The bullet traveled across his pelvis, fracturing bones, injuring internal organs, and causing severe bleeding", according to a statement Scalise's office released by MedStar Washington Hospital Center.

"After he leaves the hospital, he will require a period of healing and of rehabilitation".

Police also confirmed the first victim of the Grenfell Tower disaster has been formally identified as Mohammed Al Haj Ali. Protestors attend a rally outside Downing Street as police guard the gates; flowers are left for the victims of the blaze.

The motive for the shooting remained unclear but authorities were zeroing in on the life of James T. Hodgkinson, a 66-year-old man from IL, in the months and weeks before Wednesday morning's shooting. The FBI continues to process evidence in an effort to assess the potential motivations of the shooter, the agency said in a statement Friday.

Congressman Cedric Richmond, who is pitching in Thursday night's game is expected to give an update on Scalise's condition at 3:30 p.m.

Authorities also were going over a mobile phone, computer and camera taken from Hodgkinson's white van, which was parked near the ballfield. It appears that Scalise, his Republican colleagues and others, who were practicing for a charity baseball game, were targeted by a man - who died from his own wounds - who disagreed with Republicans' positions.

One of the Capitol Police officers, David Bailey, who was hailed as a hero for the way he helped to subdue the gunman, appeared on crutches.

India's match against South Africa was exceedingly crucial as the team losing the contest had to bid farewell to the tournament. AB de Villiers has struggled throughout the tournament and departed for just 16 as Hardik Pandya ran him out from point.

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise remains critical but improving after the Virginia baseball field ambush.

Bailey received a hero's welcome from a record crowd of almost 25,000 at Thursday's game when he threw out the first pitch, and Barth also showed up for the game, walking with crutches. He declined to speak with a reporter.

He was one of five people injured from gunshots during the shooting but the only congressman who was hit. While the top lawmakers, including Scalise, have security details, others do not and they regularly appear in public without protection.
