"We're all close to Steve Scalise, he's a lovely person". Democrats won in an 11-2 blowout. Scalise was reported to have been tended to by Rep. Brad Wenstrup of OH, a US Army Reserve doctor who served in Iraq, before his treatment at the hospital.

After accepting it gracefully, Mr Barton cracked: "Next year we won't be so nice".

Wounded U.S. Capitol Police officer David Bailey set aside one of his crutches and threw out the game's first pitch. "ONE FAMILY", proclaimed a sign in the crowd.

Doctors say Republican Rep. Steve Scalise of Louisiana remains in critical condition at a Washington hospital but is improving.

"Rep. Scalise is a proud LSU alumnus and great supporter of the university, and we are proud to help out even in this small way", said LSU President F. King Alexander.

"The game will go on, D's v. R's, as it has for nearly a century", Huffman said. He says, "They ran right into the fire" and saved a lot of lives.

A congressman said Hodgkinson asked him whether it was the Democratic or Republican team practicing before he carried out the shooting.

Constand testified last week that she did not recall knowing the woman. "My impression is she didn't want to go that far", Mr. The comedian said in depositions that he gave her the common allergy drug Benadryl and insisted the encounter was consensual.

Brooks was still on the field when Hodgkinson began his shooting rampage. "I'm prayerful he will pull through, and I hope he does", he said. "That was humbling in a way".

Doctors rushed Mr Scalise to surgery, pumping blood into his body to counteract his multiple haemorrhages. "The thoughts and prayers of the entire LSU community are with Rep. Scalise, his family and all of those injured". He wore a purple boot. Both had appeared on the House floor earlier.

There was plenty of amateur-hour baseball in the event, but also some breakout play. That lasted until the end of the seven-inning game. Though the game pegs Republicans against Democrats, attendees and participating lawmakers showed unity in wake of the shooting. Baseball cards handed out as fans entered the park identified the players' partisan voting percentages.

Brooks told CNN that he was contacted by Capitol Police and told his name and office number were on the list. Still, the divide was good-natured, for once.

"We will not give in to fear, violence or hate", Aguilar said. According to the hospital, he sustained a single shot to his left hip, with the bullet traveling across his pelvis causing bone fractures, internal organ injury and severe bleeding.

The Congressional Baseball Game, an annual tradition, went on as planned Thursday. "But for now, the members of the congressional baseball team have made the decision to go forward with tonight's game, which will be played for charity", he said.

"After he leaves the hospital he will require a period of healing and stabilization", he said.
