Democrats Win Congressional Baseball Game After Steve Scalise Shooting
19 Junio 2017, 07:51 | Gervasio Siguenza
President Trump speaks Thursday morning
The game was played just one day after Rep. Steve Scalise and four others were shot during baseball practice for the game in Alexandria, Va. Scalise is still in the hospital, reportedly in critical condition with broken bones and damage to his internal organs.
Scalise, the House majority whip, was one of five people shot when a gunman opened fire Wednesday as the Republicanteam practiced in Alexandria, Virginia.
Dr. Jack Sava of MedStar Washington Hospital Center says "an excellent recovery is a good possibility", but says Scalise faces additional surgeries, a long hospital stay and rehabilitation. A hospital statement said Scalise was doing better over the previous 24 hours but would be in the hospital for some time. Mika's family said the lobbyist was shot multiple times.
Scalise has played in several congressional baseball games, including last year's 8-7 Republican victory. Almost 25,000 tickets were sold, and organizers expected the proceeds to top $1 million, easily exceeding the $650,000 that had been expected.
President Donald Trump said in a taped message to the players and spectators that coming together for a ball game a day after a tragedy shows "the world that we will not be intimidated by assaults. on our democracy".
The baseball tradition is said to have forged a friendship between Richmond and fellow Louisiana Rep. Scalise. His first surgery was likely "to control life-threatening hemorrhage and limit any contamination from his gastrointestinal tract", Hunt said.
David Bailey, a Capitol Hill police officer who was part of Mr Scalise's security detail and helped bring down the shooter, was also injured in the incident but had recovered enough to throw the game's ceremonial first pitch.
He said the Republican whip spent much of the last year ribbing him about the Democrats' loss the previous year, and he was looking forward to the chance to turn the tables.
And even as the fans rose as one to cheer Mr Scalise's name and the Capitol Police, there was no mistaking the lusty cheers for their own side as the game progressed.
With 39 wins each for the Democratic and Republican teams and a tied game between them, the focus of Thursday evening's baseball game was supposed to be on who would finally break the partisan tie.
Nonetheless, said Sava, "we fully expect him to be able to walk" and "hopefully run".
Rep. Cedric Richmond, the Democrats' star player, said he planned to stop by the hospital to check on Scalise before heading to the stadium. "I think that his risk of death right now is substantially lower than when he came in. he was as critical as you can be when he came in".
Democrats bounced back from a loss a year ago, when the game was played the night after they held an all-night session on the House floor to protest Republican inaction on gun legislation.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation is investigating the attack, which has raised questions about lawmakers' security, renewed the nation's contentious debate over guns and drawn fresh attention to the harsh rhetoric that reflects the deep political divisions in America.
Democrats eventually won the game 11-2. Jeff Flake and Rep. Brad Wenstrup, who is a physician, applied pressure to his wound, Flake said.
