At the game Thursday night, U.S. Capitol Police checked bags with dogs in tow, in an atmosphere that attendees said seemed particularly alert.

The two team managers, Republican Representative Joe Barton and Democratic Representative Mike Doyle, both vowed that their squads would win the charity game.

The opposing sides are paying tribute to Rep. Steve Scalise, the House majority whip who was critically wounded when a gunman opened fire at a Republican baseball practice in Virginia on Wednesday.

Five people were injured, including MI native Matt Mika and U.S. Rep Steve Scalise, R-Louisiana, who remain in critical condition. Also shot were a congressional aide, a lobbyist and a Capitol Police officer.

First, Democrats and Republicans gathered around second base to pray at the spot where Rep. Scalise was shot.

And because the shooter's political views drove him to commit a insane and violent act, all Washington is on edge as Scalise fights for his life.

Daily Caller's Kaitlan Collins reported that "Scalise has received multiple units of blood transfusion". The JumboTron showed a fan with a sign "Scalise Strong!" Many players, although wearing uniforms of various professional and college baseball teams within their states and districts, wore the purple caps of Louisiana State University in Scalise's honor.

The game went ahead as scheduled on Thursday, in an emotional display of bipartisan unity. "We hope." Gabrielle Webster is the CEO of the Boys and Girls Club of Washington, another of the four charities supported by the Congressional Baseball Game. Doyle gave the winning trophy back to the Republicans to put in Scalise's office.


ESPN reported, "When the president intoned three words he said have brought Americans together for generations-"Let's play ball"-cheers rang out".

The gunman died after being wounded in a gunfight with police.

C-SPAN provided coverage, and additional national television, radio and other media outlets tuned in.

"Most importantly, we are forever grateful for the heroism of Special Agents Crystal Griner and David Bailey, who saved the lives of everyone at the baseball field that morning, including Steve's", Scalise's wife, Jennifer, said in the statement.

"It seems like you are going to have every camera in the country there, even internationally", said Republican starting pitcher Mark Walker of North Carolina. The rifle round caused severe bleeding, and a doctor said Friday that when he was admitted he was critical with imminent risk of death, but had improved.

It is one of the most anticipated events of summer at the Capitol, with Democrats and Republicans splitting the 79 games that have been played over the years 39-39, with one tie.

This isn't just a baseball game. He says Scalise is "in some trouble".
