Both Congressional Baseball Teams Observe Moment of Silence at 2nd Base

Freda Brock | 18 June, 2017, 23:38

Louisiana Congressman Steve Scalise was in "imminent risk of death" when he first arrived at the hospital after being shot on Wednesday his doctors say. He said it is now hard to predict how long Scalise will need to remain in the hospital but they should have a better idea of that in the coming days.

At the press conference Friday, Scalise's chief of staff Brett Horton read a statement from Scalise's wife Jennifer thanking everyone for their prayers and well wishes and thanking the Capitol Police officers who helped save lives at the scene.

Suffering relatively minor injuries were two Capitol Police officers, David Bailey and Crystal Griner, and House GOP aide Zack Barth.

As for rehabilitation, Sava said he believed Scalise will be "able to walk and hopefully run" in the future.

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.

A physician treating U.S. Representative Steve Scalise, who was seriously wounded in an attack on Republican lawmakers at a baseball field near Washington, said Friday that his vital signs were stable but that he was still in critical condition. The shooter was an IL man, James T. Hodgkinson, who had lashed out against President Trump and Republicans over social media.

Sava estimates there are hundreds of bullet fragments in Scalise's pelvis and says doctors don't intend to try to remove them all, as that could cause more harm than good.

Sava said he was surprised by initial media reports that said Scalise was in stable condition.

Daily Caller's Kaitlan Collins reported that "Scalise has received multiple units of blood transfusion".

If Scalise did not suffer nerve damage and his recovery continues without any complications, "it is possible that within three months or so, he back on his feet", said Dr. Alex Jahangir, an orthopedic trauma surgeon at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, who was not involved in Scalise's care.

Sixty members of Congress from both parties knelt at second base in prayer for the four people wounded during a shooting that took place during the Republicans' final tune-up for the 57th Congressional #Baseball Game.

Several people were injured, including Rep. Scalise. The shooter was an IL man, James Hodgkinson, who had lashed out against President Donald Trump and Republicans over social media.

"He's in some trouble, but he's a great fighter and he's going to be OK, we hope", the President said.

Earlier Friday, House Speaker Paul Ryan paid a visit to his injured colleague, who faces the prospect of a lengthy hospitalization after getting shot in the hip at a baseball practice by a deranged man with grudges against Trump and the GOP.

"We pray for all of the victims of this awful crime who are still recovering - including Zachary Barth and Matt Mika, both of whom are respected and cherished by so many".

Although the weather in Washington looks headed toward a near-flawless summer night, an obvious and immovable shadow is being cast over Thursday night's Congressional Baseball Game - a tradition that began more than a century ago.

"He clearly knows they're there and appreciates their presence", Sava said.
