A ballgame of unity, spirit, friendly rivalry, won by Dems

The annual friendly bipartisan game takes place in an effort to raise money for charity, said the New York Times.

Speaker Paul D. Ryan, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Senator Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi all met around a microphone together to yell "play ball!"

The Illinois congressman grew emotional as he described seeing his colleague, Rep. Steve Scalise, lying motionless on the ground.

According to CNN, President Trump visited Rep. Steven Scalise in the hospital.

Scalise was wounded when a gunman opened fire at a GOP lawmaker baseball practice Wednesday morning.

The president made his comments as he spoke in Miami to announce a new policy on Cuba.

"It's been much more hard than people even thought at that time", President Trump said.

"So we all owe Steve a big, big thank you", Trump added.

U.S. Rep. Steve Scalise faced an "imminent risk of death" after a high-velocity rifle shot struck his left hip, his doctor said Friday, leaving him "as critical as you can be" when he arrived at the hospital earlier this week. The hospital planned to hold a briefing on his condition later in the day Friday. During the visit, Trump told Scalise that the prayers being offered in his behalf were innumerable. The two have enjoyed a long-running ribbing over the game, which Republicans won last year to break a seven-year Democratic win streak. After accepting it graciously, Barton cracked, "Next year we won't be so nice".

Congressman Steve Scalise remains in critical condition following surgery to fix injuries sustained after he was shot at a congressional baseball practice Wednesday, hospital officials announced in a statement on Thursday evening. His doctors indicated Scalise suffered internal wounds and fractured bones, and was due for additional surgery.

The suspected gunman, James T Hodgkinson, died from injuries hours after Wednesday's shooting. The shooter was identified as James T. Hodgkinson, a 66-year-old home inspector from IL.

"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".

It is a rare and genuine opportunity for Democrats and Republicans to put their divisions aside and show those gathered in the stadium and watching across the USA, that they are not just politicians - they are people and players.

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. Shimkus says the main problem is those on the extreme right and left want flawless agreement on their views, which goes against American democracy.
