Congressional Baseball game has tender moments, day after shooter injures 5

More than $1 million has been raised for Congressional Sports for Charity, and more than 20,000 tickets have been sold for the game, the organizers wrote on Facebook Thursday afternoon. FILE - In this March 8, 2017 file photo, House Majority Whip Steve Scalise of La. speaks on Capitol Hill in Washington.

President Donald Trump, who visited Scalise in the hospital on Wednesday, sent a video message that played at the start of the game.

Although Scalise was able to talk on the ballfield, by the time he was transported by helicopter to the hospital, he was in shock. "He remains in critical condition, but has improved in the last 24 hours".

The source, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Scalise was undergoing another surgical procedure on Thursday.

Republican Chuck Fleischmann of Tennessee scored in the first innings, enjoying a different sort of adrenaline than the one he experienced on Wednesday when he passed the gunman over bloodied ground to take shelter in a dugout. "But during the game, we're going to play to win, and I know Joe's team is going to do the same thing", Doyle said on Wednesday.

Sava said that after being released from the hospital, Scalise "will require a period of healing and rehabilitation".

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, Virginia, chose to come to the game for the first time. "Yes, he has additional operations he will need before he leaves the hospital". Two lawmakers who were leaving practice when they encountered Hodgkinson before the shooting believe he was targeting Republicans. But Trump went on to say that "Because of him and the tremendous pain and suffering he's now enduring - and he's having a hard time, far worse than anybody thought - our country will perhaps become closer, more unified, so important".

"By playing tonight, you are showing the world that we will not be intimidated by threats, acts of violence, or assaults on our democracy", Trump said.

Scalise's wife, Jennifer, issued a statement saying she was thankful for the "incredible amount of prayers and warm wishes" the family has received since the shooting.

Scalise, 51, and three others were wounded when a man identified as James Hodgkinson, 66, from the St. Louis suburb of Belleville, Illinois opened fire on the Republican lawmakers.

Hodgkinson contacted both of his state's Democratic senators frequently, always through email links on their websites, spokesmen said Friday. He declined to describe specific internal injuries.

Hodgkinson also contacted the office of Rep. Mike Bost, R-Ill., at least 10 times over the past year, a Bost spokesman has said, characterizing the emails and phone calls as negative but not threatening.

There was a loud ovation when Special Agent David Bailey, one of the Capitol Police officers injured in the attack, threw out the first pitch.
