On June 14 of last year a man open fired at a baseball field in Alexandria, Virginia where members of Congress were practicing for the annual Congressional baseball game. Rep. Steve Scalise, the House Majority Whip, and three others were shot. Scalise was taken to the hospital in shock and in critical condition and had to undergo multiple surgeries. He’d remain in the hospital for nearly six weeks an would not return to Congress until September.

The 2018 Congressional baseball game is scheduled for June 14, a year to the day of Scalise’s shooting. Scalise is getting ready. This was tweeted by Senator Jeff Flake earlier today:

Scalise later responded, “Feels good to be back with the team!”

Good to see he’s recovered and back in action.
