Both Congressional Baseball Teams Observe Moment of Silence at 2nd Base

On Thursday evening the hospital announced that Scalise had another surgery related to his internal injuries and a broken bone in his leg.

President Donald Trump suggested Thursday that Rep. Steve Scalise is in worse condition than many initially realized.

"I would encourage you to talk to military medical colleagues about what it's like to be shot with a high-velocity rifle in the hip region", Sava said. This year's baseball game, played at Nationals Park in Southeast Washington, looks to be a place where members can show it.

The Republican congressional baseball team had been practising for Thursday's annual charity game between Democrats and Republicans when the gunman attacked shortly after 7am.

Steve Scalise remains in critical condition following a shooting Wednesday morning at a baseball field in Alexandria, Virginia.

"We're not going to let incidents like this change our way of life or our daily routines", Doyle said, noted Entertainment Weekly.

The president said that because of the "tremendous pain and suffering he's now enduring. our country will perhaps become closer, more unified". Vice-president Mike Pence also visited the hospital. His condition is critical, and he will require additional operations.

Jennifer Scalise also is thanking the first responders who rushed to her husband's aid Wednesday and the staff at MedStar Washington Hospital Center, where her husband remains in critical condition.

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.

Scalise has remained under sedation, although doctors have lightened the medication at times so that the congressman can communicate with relatives.

Hodgkinson shot House Majority White Steve Scalise in the hip. Hodgkinson had a history of posting angry messages against Trump and other Republicans on social media.

Both teams will wear Louisiana State University clothing and hats in honor of Scalise, a representative from the state and fan of the school's athletics teams, known as the Tigers.

Other lawmakers spoke out about threats they had received as they left a law enforcement briefing with officials in Washington D.C. on Thursday.

"I would like to see the President stay off of Twitter", Republican Senator John Thune told MSNBC, adding that lawmakers had to do their part to tone down comments and work with the opposing party.

In the history of the contest, Republicans and Democrats each have won 39 games with one tie.
