But star pitcher and fiery Democrat Cedric Richmond shut down his Republican colleagues, limiting them to two runs as the Democrats prevailed in an 11-2 rout. "We've had a very, very divided country for many years".
Capitol Police officers in Scalise's security detail returned fire, and Hodgkinson later died from his injuries. "ONE FAMILY", proclaimed a sign in the crowd.
Investigators say he shot House Rep. Steve Scalise before he was killed by police who had been guarding the congressman.
Scalise, 51, a Louisiana Republican who is the No. 3 House Republican, remained in critical condition at a hospital a few miles from the stadium after undergoing a third surgery on Thursday.
President Donald Trump is calling for unity in a video message to the Congressional Baseball game, telling the Republican and Democratic competitors "we are here to serve this nation we love and the people who call it home". "The game will go on". The popular annual face-off, which raises money for charity, is scheduled to go forward as planned Thursday evening at Nationals Park in Washington.
Lawmakers noted their good fortune in having armed protectors on hand - "Thank God", they exclaimed over and over - and said otherwise the shooter would have been able to take a huge deadly toll.
The shooting occurred at a popular park and baseball complex across the Potomac River in Alexandria, where Republican lawmakers and others were gathered for a morning practice about 7 a.m.
"It seems self-evident that when the teams are practicing, there should be security there", Pelosi said.
Before the shooting, Scalise was slated to play second base on Thursday night for the Republicans. "I know you all will be playing extra hard tonight for Steve", Trump said. "That was humbling in a way".
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". He wore a purple boot. He was injured by shrapnel during the shooting and used crutches to walk to the mound. Both had appeared on the House floor earlier Thursday.
Rep. Dwight Evans, a Democrat, and Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick, a Republican, represent districts in Pennsylvania.
The game raised about $500,000 for charity a year ago, according to spokeswoman Meredith Raimondi. Republicans and Democrats sat in different parts of the park - fans could state their party preference when buying tickets. Thompson offered his appreciation for the bravery of the U.S. Capitol Police. Still, the divide was good-natured, for once.
From the stands, Vince Wetzel, a resident of Sacramento, California, who is visiting Washington and made a decision to take in the game, said, "It's just a good call to put aside political differences and just play some baseball".
"Let us not jump immediately into blaming this one or that one", said Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of Texas.
Scalise was shot in the hip, and sustained grievous injuries as the bullet traveled through his pelvis and injured internal organs.
When he left, she said, Hodgkinson told her he was going to Washington, D.C.to "work with people to change the tax brackets".
Even so, a poignant and immovable shadow cast itself over Thursday's annual congressional baseball game. The Washington Nationals Dream Foundation, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Washington and the Washington Literary Center are the game's other beneficiaries.
Ticket sales picked up after Wednesday's shooting, eventually setting an attendance record, the organizers said, as attendees such as Alexander Hilten, 16, of Arlington, Va., chose to come to the game for the first time.
It's time to play ball.
That total was all pre-game online sales, and nearly half of it came since Wednesday, Brown said. The two have enjoyed a long-running ribbing over the game, which Republicans won last year to break a seven-year Democratic win streak. "Goodbye!" they sang, implying the vote would be the Republicans downfall.
